||INTERGARD™ Heparin Ultrathin
Advantages of INTERGARD Heparin
As a highly potent, natural anticoagulant, heparin is well known as an antithrombotic agent, and it has been shown to inhibit smooth muscle cell proliferation. INTERGARD Heparin grafts incorporate biologically active heparin on the fabric of the graft. A prospective, randomized clinical trial demonstrated significantly higher patency rates and significantly lower amputation rates compared with PTFE. 1
Made of collagen-coated heparin-bonded polyester, INTERGARD Heparin grafts are available in Knitted and UltraThin configurations, offering the advantages of heparin for a variety of vascular procedures.
One of the Thinnest Peripheral Grafts on the Market
INTERGARD Heparin UltraThin is a highly innovative vascular graft designed to improve outcomes of peripheral bypass procedures. With a wall thickness of just 0.35 mm, the INTERGARD Heparin UltraThin is one of the thinnest peripheral vascular grafts on the market. The result is a highly compliant vascular graft that offers an improved alternative for peripheral vascular bypass procedures.
The unique polyester knitted matrix creates a compliant vessel with exceptional handling and suturing characteristics, and outstanding anastomotic conformation. INTERGARD Heparin UltraThin is a unique polyester drug/device combination that provides an alternative for peripheral bypass procedures when saphenous vein is not available.
