Proprietary Technology

Terumo Aortic products are powered by technologies that help ensure that every product you use can be implanted and deployed safely.

Advanced Delivery

Terumo Aortic delivery systems use proprietary technology to reposition, deploy and facilitate the implant and overall procedure.

Knitting & Weaving

We utilise looms specially adapted to the needs of aortic repair textiles. Our unique Köper knitted structure features yarns arranged perpendicular to each other on the inner surface.

This preserves all the advantages of a knitted material, such as superb handling, absence of fraying and also displays significantly reduced dilatation when compared to warp-knitted grafts.1, 2

Sealant Technology

Sealed products feature a patented gelatin outer coating to assist the implantation process.

The gelatin technology is also an ideal sealant for bonding to the antibiotic rifampicin, which is used to minimise the occurrence of graft infection after implantation.†, 3, 4

Terumo Aortic’s gelatin sealed devices may be soaked with the anticoagulant Heparin or the antibiotic Rifampicin prior to implant.

Unlike other sealants, Terumo Aortic’s gelatin is broken down by the body’s own natural means over a period of approximately 14 days.This process does not provoke a prolonged inflammatory response within the patient’s body.5

This sealant removal rate allows natural tissue ingrowth to occur within the structure of the graft thereby mimicking the body’s natural mechanisms.6
