Data from this randomized multicenter study demonstrated improved midterm patency, less bleeding at the suture hole, and lower major adverse events with the FUSION BIOLINE heparin-coated vascular graft compared with standard ePTFE grafts. Although the ultimate long-term benefit of the graft cannot be ascertained with the data currently available, the utility of the FUSION BIOLINE vascular graft appears promising.
