Clinical Evidence

Improving Clinical Outcomes

The efficacy of our Spiral Flow™ Peripheral Vascular graft is supported by an ongoing programme of clinical trials and an existing body of robust clinical evidence.

The Surgeon has the benefit of a familiar, safe and clinically proven graft with the added power of Spiral Laminar Flow™ technology delivering:

  • Reduced Neo-intimal Hyperplasia
  • Reduced disease progression
  • Longer device patency

The patient can expect fewer interventions and an associated improvement in quality of life.  Click here to view the clinical studies to date.
