Abstract

A new cuffed ePTFE graft was developed to decrease the incidence of outflow stenosis and improve long-term graft patency. The one-year graft patency and blood flow rates in this graft were determined. Stable blood flow rates and excellent one-year graft patency were achieved, even in high risk patients with prior history of graft thrombosis.
