Figure 3. Replacement of segment of descending thoracic aorta in pig with the test graft using standard protocol via left postero-lateral thoracotomy (A) . Gross healing characterstics of test vascular graft at explant post-6 month in vivo in pig in 8, 4 and 12 cm lengths respectively (B, C, D) . Neointima was found to be smooth in short replacements while it was less regular and even, nonetheless thrombus-free, in long grafts
