Experience Superb Healing:
• Designed to provide initial blood-tight seal for improved hemostasis5
• Promotes formation of a smooth, thin pseudointima1
• Enhances graft patency1
• Provides controlled resorption for uniform tissue ingrowth1
 
Advancing Graft Technology:
• First machine-made vascular graft
• First warp knitted graft to resist unraveling
• First bifurcated graft with anatomically correct limbs
• First crimped graft to resist kinking when pressurized
• First double velour graft for improved sealing, handling, and healing
• First knitted, collagen impregnated zero pre-clot graft
 
Experience Exceptional Handling. HEMASHIELD GOLD
grafts have improved handling characteristics without compromising graft performance.**
• Soft, flexible material is designed to conform to host vessel for easier   anastomosis
• Smooth needle passage and excellent suture retention are designed to
  reduce bleeding at the anastomosis
• Highly compliant material promotes a snug fit at the anastomosis
 
HEMASHIELD GOLD Grafts – Experience the Difference:
• Over 20 years of experience
• Over 8 million implanted textile grafts*
• Over 2 million HEMASHIELD implants*
MAQUET Cardiovascular utilizes an exclusive patented collagen impregnation process without using a crosslinking
agent.
 
Double velour enhances graft incorporation to the vessel wall and helps to improve pseudointimal formation.
Knitted material allows smooth needle passage and ease of suturing creating a snug anastomosis
