A new sutureless intraluminal graft was developed with an elastic ring made of a flat spring. The diameter of the ring could be reversibly reduced by compression. The sutureless intraluminal graft with an elastic ring can attach itself to the vessel wall by elastic expansion of the ring. The elastic-ring graft was implanted in the descending thoracic aortas of nine dogs and was evaluated histologically and angiographically at different intervals from 18 to 150 days. No complication such as detachment of the ring, aortic rupture, stenosis, or aneurysmal dilatation was observed. With the new graft neither ligation nor posterior aortic wall dissection is necessary, and no anastomotic stenosis occurs. This graft is applicable even if the diameter of the aorta is small. Therefore the elastic-ring sutureless intraluminal graft promises theoretic advantages over sutureless methods that use tape ligation.
