Custom Aortic Stent Graft Design and Manufacturing
Stent grafts are similar to the grafts discussed previously but these products typically have a self-expanding frame (stent) that is covered with a knit or woven material to seal the vessel walls and prevent leaks. Often used in minimally invasive endovascular aortic repair, stent grafts are critical devices used to heal aortic aneurysms. With our capabilities to develop custom vascular and structural heart components, the format of the stent graft can be varied, sometimes with multiple branches depending upon the severity of the repair that must be made. The textile covering for the flexible stent frame can be knit or woven depending on the physical and performance characteristics required.
