Abstract

See full text

A collagen impregnated vascular graft including drug materials complexed with the collagen to be released slowly from the graft following implant. The graft is a porous synthetic vascular graft substrate having collagen fixed to the graft substrate and cross-linking the collagen in situ to render the porous substrate blood-tight. The drug materials complexed with the collagen fibrils may include antithrombic agents, antibacterial, antimicrobial agents, antifungal agents and the like.
