Challenge:
Decreased suture line bleeding with a non-biologic, superior material in cardiovascular reconstructions.


Choice:
GORE® ACUSEAL Cardiovascular Patch

Today's health care providers are seeking new ways to reduce operating room time and the need for second surgery in cardiac, great vessel and peripheral vascular reconstruction. One area for improvement was decreasing suture line bleeding in cardiovascular reconstruction.

GORE® ACUSEAL Cardiovascular Patch utilizes advanced fluoropolymer technology, enabling it to "seal" around penetrating suture and decrease suture line bleeding by as much as 88 percent*. This improvement, combined with improved suture retention, multi-directional strength and low thrombogenicity, sets the patch apart from other surgical biomaterials.
