Choice of Material for Above-Knee Femoro-Popliteal Bypass Prosthetic Graft (PopUp)
Choice of Material for Above-Knee Femoro-Popliteal Bypass Prosthetic Graft. Multicenter Randomized Study of an Impregnated Knitted Polyester Prosthesis Vs. PTFE (Uni-Graft Vs Gore-Tex).
This trial was designed to challenge the wide held view that polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) performs better than Dacron for above knee femoropopliteal bypass.
Objective: To investigate whether patency rates of 6 mm gelatine coated, knitted, double velour polyester prostheses are equal to the 6 mm thinwalled ePTFE prostheses as above-knee femoro-popliteal bypass graft
