Trusted for more than 20 years, HEMASHIELD grafts are the most used, most studied vascular products available in the market today. More than 2 million HEMASHIELD grafts have been implanted worldwide, demonstrating clinical efficacy and improved outcomes. These grafts have superior healing, improved tissue ingrowth, higher patency, excellent biocompatibility, and proven efficacy.

HEMASHIELD GOLD Knitted Double Velour Vascular Grafts are collagen-impregnated and come in straight, bifurcated, or axillo-bifemoral options of varying lengths.

Specially formulated for excellent healing:

  • Provides initial blood-tight seal for improved hemostasis
  • Promotes formation of a smooth, thin pseudointima
  • Enhances graft patency
  • Provides controlled resorption for uniform tissue ingrowth

Exceptional handling characteristics for improved efficiency:

  • Soft, flexible material conforms to host vessel for easier anastomosis
  • Smooth needle passage and excellent suture retention helps reduce bleeding at the anastomosis
  • Highly compliant material promotes a snug fit at the anastomosis

Material

  • Knitted double velour impregnated polyester graft
  • Porosity < 10 mL/min/cm2

Superior Healing

  • Excellent tissue incorporation
  • Thin, adherent inner capsule
  • Excellent sealant resorption rate

Exceptional Handling

  • Exceptional handling characteristics for easy anastomosis
  • Soft, flexible material conforms more readily to host vessel
  • Improved, consistent hemostatic control

Optimal Hemostasis

  • Proprietary collagen-impregnation process promotes optimal healing response
  • No pre-clotting required, minimizing suture-hole bleeding

Vascular Grafts for Aortic Repair

  • Vascular grafts are used for surgical repair of the aorta affected by either aneurismal disease or completely occluded by atherosclerosis.
  • MAQUET also offers woven HEMASHIELD PLATINUM grafts designed for thoracic aortic repair procedures. These pre-sewn branch grafts reduce procedure time and allow for surgical technique options.
  • Available in straight, one-branch or multi-branch graft configurations, each is collagen-impregnated for improved healing and hemostasis.

Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Repair

  • Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (TAA) are located in the portion of the aorta that is in the chest.
  • Treatment options for TAA include observation and risk management, open surgical repair, and endovascular repair.

Arteriovenous Access

Arteriovenous (AV) Access is the connecting of an artery to a vein, thereby creating a site on the body where blood is removed and returned during dialysis.

Carotid Endarterectomy

Carotid endarterectomy, also known as carotid artery surgery, is a surgical procedure done to remove the buildup of plaque within the carotid artery to restore normal blood flow to the brain and minimize the risk of a stroke.

Peripheral Bypass

Peripheral bypass surgery is used to bypass diseased blood vessels in the legs, feet, arms or hands.
