Polyester vascular graft material and risk for intracavitary thoracic vascular graft infection


Schweizer, Tiziano A; Shambat, Srikanth Mairpady; Haunreiter, Vanina Dengler; Mestres, Carlos A; Weber, Alberto; Maisano, Francesco; Zinkernagel, Annelies S; Hasse, Barbara (2020). Polyester vascular graft material and risk for intracavitary thoracic vascular graft infection. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 26(10):2448-2452.

Abstract

Prosthetic vascular graft infections of the thoracic aorta are rare but can be fatal. Our comparison of collagen- and gelatin-coated grafts showed that collagen-coated grafts were associated with increased biofilm formation and bacterial adherence in vitro and with higher rates of perioperative vascular graft infections in vivo.
