Abstract

See full text

A tubular intraluminal graft for repairing body conduits, made from at least one layer of porous expanded PTFE film that has a microstructure having fibrils oriented in at least two directions which are substantially perpendicular to each other. The tubular intraluminal graft has a wall thickness of less than about 0.25 mm and may have a longitudinally or helically oriented seamline. Additional reinforcing components such as reinforcing ribs or braids may also be provided.
