FlowLine Bipore ePTFE-Prostheses

The new alternative for all peripheral vascular reconstructions and a.-v. vascular access.

< FlowLine Bipore with/without Helix
ePTFE vascular prostheses are now firmly established the world over as an important component in the therapy of peripheral occlusive diseases.

JOTEC has established a production unit using the newest technology. We use modern, computer-supported production techniques to manufacture high-quality ePTFE prostheses for vascular and shunt surgery.

The grafts are inspected. . .

FlowLine Bipore ePTFE vascular prostheses have the following properties:

• Unique Bipore design of the microporous structure with two different fibril lengths for low thrombogenicity.
• A thin ePTFE wrap on the surface for high burst strength and enhanced suture retention
• New and unique marking guideline indicating diameter, length and wallthickness of the graft
• Innovative double-helices to resist kinking and compression
• Excellent and pliable handling and suture behaviour

The term Bipore describes the innovative design of the microporous ePTFE structure: Pre-defined positioning of alternating short and long fibrils for reduced thrombogenicity rates.

A complete pallet of lengths and diameters is available in thin-wall and standard wall thicknesses as well as with and without the external double-helix reinforcement.
