The Optimal Choice for Abdominal Vascular Reconstruction
Maquet's collagen-coated INTERGARD Knitted vascular grafts are designed with a unique reverse locknit construction that offers excellent handling and suturing characteristics. It also results in long-term stability and resistance to dilatation. INTERGARD Knitted grafts have a burst strength nearly twice that of other knitted polyester collagen- impregnated grafts on the market,1 which significantly reduces the potential for postoperative dilatation.2
To promote optimal healing and long-term patency, INTERGARD Knitted grafts have a low-profile velour on the external surface. They incorporate a soft, open crimp design to minimize turbulence and enhance neointima formation.
Summary of benefits:
Demonstrated long-term durability and resistance to postoperative dilation.2
Proprietary knit design produces outstanding handling and suturability.
Low-profile velour construction designed to promote optimal healing.
