However, our feelings were that the following processes would likely occur: the outer layers of the grafted venous wall would not receive any nutrients from the surrounding tissues, and their cells and adnexae (collagen and elastic fibers). We make numerous holes or slits not larger than 1 mm in diameter on the spirally supported prosthetic graft (PTFE, Dacron) or mesh tube. The spirally reinforced mesh tube brings surrounding tissues with the vein graft in closer proximing. In summary, there are a number of potential advantages to external reinforcement of vein grafts with relatively rigid prosthetic supports.
