The GORE® ACUSEAL Vascular Graft features a tri-layer design optimized for early cannulation.
The GORE® ACUSEAL Vascular Graft supports surgical performance through several key features, including:
- Early Cannulation: Tri-layer sealing properties make our graft cannulation-capable within 24 hours of implantation, allowing for earlier removal or completely avoiding the use of a central venous catheter
- Uncompromised Handling: Our kink-resistant graft promotes precise suturing and anastomotic tailoring
- Sustained Bioactivity: Proprietary thromboresistant luminal graft with CBAS Heparin Surface1
The graft expands treatment options with the potential for earlier cannulation and earlier removal or avoidance of a central venous catheter. Our kink-resistant graft is flexible at curves and free from stiffness or rigidity. An elastomeric middle membrane between inner and outer layers of our proprietary expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) hinders bleeding caused by suture lines and cannulation needles. The tri-layer graft may also reduce the risk of seroma formation.2
- Sustained CBAS Surface heparin bioactivity has been measured in a controlled three-month animal study.
