Extending long-term vessel patency in patients with obstructions in the dialysis outflow circuit
The Merit WRAPSODY was designed to solve an unmet clinical need for dialysis patients with stenosis in the outflow circuit. Improved primary patency | Reduced revision frequency | Less hospitalization | Avoid catheterization | Reduced economic cost.
Unique Tri-Layered Endoprosthesis Microstructure
Middle Cell-Impermeable Layer: The Merit Wrapsody is engineered with an impermeable middle layer built to prevent transmural cellular migration w/o the use of drug bonding.
Inside Novel-Spun PTFE Layer: The innermost layer of the Merit WRAPSODY is made of a biocompatible, novel-spun PTFE layer designed to limit inflammation and thrombus formation without coatings, chemicals, or drugs
Outer ePTFE - Standard Layer: The outer layer of the Merit WRAPSODY is engineered with a standard, biocompatible ePTFE material that allows for necessary tissue ingrowth to prevent endoprosthesis migration.
