Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In order to improve the capability of withstanding mechanical trauma during surgical manipulations, a new generation of tanned ovine collagen vascular grafts with a thicker inner tissue cover has been developed. In spite of such structural refinements, long-term performance of the new grafts, implanted in the inferior vena cava of pigs, was not superior to that of the former grafts.
