Company Spotlight: Vascular Graft Solutions: VGS

10/11/15

Coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG) is one of the most common surgical procedures of the heart.

 


In simple terms: CABG surgery restores blood flow to the heart when one or more of the blood vessels are blocked.

What happens during CABG surgery?

First, the surgeon removes a section of a healthy vein or artery from another area of the patient’s body and relocates it to the heart.

This is called a graft.

The surgeon attaches one end of the graft to a major blood vessel above the heart.

The other end is then attached to an area of the coronary artery downstream from the blockage, thus creating a bypass route for blood flow.

Once the graft is in place, blood flow to the heart is restored.

Challenges:
CABG provides an excellent short and medium term solution but its long-term success may be limited by failure of the relocated veins that have been used to bypass the blood vessels of the heart. In their new location as bypass grafts, the veins are exposed to higher blood pressure and irregular flow, which make them more sensitive and prone to develop new areas of blockage.

After one year, more than 30% of patients will suffer from vein graft full or partial blockage. Blocked or diseased vein grafts mean that the patient may develop recurrent angina (chest pain) and may require further treatment including the possibility of another operation.

Introducing VEST!
VEST, developed by Vascular Graft Solutions, is a delicate "sleeve" that is threaded over the vein graft during the bypass operation.

The VEST is a unique cobalt chrome braid that supports the graft from the outside, absorbing and relieving the tension caused by high pressure, while improving uniformity of the vessel wall and flow pattern.

VEST implantation fits in perfectly with routine CABG, and takes only 2 minutes to complete.VEST slows down the development of vein graft disease and is an important enhancement for Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery.
