Abstract

Myristoyl gelatin (MG) retains its gel structure at temperatures above body temperature without any crosslinking. As a coating material, MG adheres well to polyester fibers, and the outermost layers of the sealant that are in contact with blood or surrounding tissue become hydrophilic. We produced MG-impregnated knitted Dacron vascular prostheses (MG graft [MGG]) and investigated the usefulness of MG as a sealant by replacing the thoracic aorta oil dogs. MGGs (5 cm long with an inner diameter of 10 mm) were implanted in 5 mongrel dogs (10-20 kg), and the grafts were retrieved at intervals of 4 h and 2, 4, 8, and 15 weeks after grafting. There was no thrombus formation on the flow surface of the MGGs, indicating adequate antithrombogenic properties. No resorption of MG occurred until after 2 weeks, and neither immune reaction nor excessive foreign body reaction was noted. Fragmentation of the sealant induced by cell infiltration began to occur at 4 weeks, yet the sealing effect persisted. The organization of MGG was almost complete at 8 weeks. Because of its pliability and effective adhesion to polyester fibers, its antithrombogenicity, and the persistent sealing effect due to delayed biodegradation and resorption, we conclude that MG is an extremely useful sealant for polyester vascular prostheses.
