Aruga arterial implants are designed to pulse and wrinkle just like the arteries we’re born with that nature designed. The dynamic wrinkling continuously introduces mechanical strain to adhesive foulants and prevents accumulation on the surface. With Aruga implants, patients with cardiovascular issues will remain free of clotting complications with their bypass surgeries and stay healthy.
The video shows the cross section of the Aruga graft when hooked up to a pulsatile blood pump mimicking cardiovascular flow. The video was taken with an OCT camera.
