Abstract

Background. Dacron prostheses in humans have been documented to present long-term fiber alterations, that may account for late graft dilatation. Latedilatation has been documented mainly in knitted prostheses, implanted in the abdominal and thoracic aorta. Dilatation of the collagen-impregnated Hemashield Woven(R) prosthesis has not been studied prospectively in the thoracic aorta. Methods. Twenty patients were prospectively included. The intraoperative performance of the graft and mid-term clinical behaviour were studied. The graft distensibility was evaluated by postoperative, 1 and 3 yr computed tomographic diameter follow-up. Results. There were no hospital deaths. Two graft-unrelated deaths occurred at 3 yr. The graft performance was excellent or good for most aspects. Nosignificant changes in CT diameter occurred throughout the 3 yr follow-up. Conclusion. The collagen-impregnated Hemashield Woven(R) prosthesis is considered safe in replacements of the thoracic aorta. Future evaluation should focus on the very long-term behaviour in young adults.
