Description

From Gore

The GORE VIABAHN Endoprosthesis is constructed with a durable, reinforced, biocompatible, expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) liner attached to an external nitinol stent structure. The flexibility of the GORE VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis enables it to traverse tortuous areas of the SFA and conform closely to the complex anatomy of the artery. W. L. Gore & Associates has now added a heparin-bonded surface to the GORE VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis.

The GORE VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis with Heparin Bioactive Surface is approved for both the SFA and iliac artery. The stent-graft features the addition of proprietary heparin-bonded technology to the proven combination of ePTFE and nitinol. End-point covalent bonding keeps heparin anchored to the endoprosthesis surface while the bioactive site remains free to interact with the blood.
