Quotes

"In each instance, there are severe shape-making limitations, e g., the known non-fibrous methods appear to be limited to working with a relatively low viscosity liquid that can be coated onto a surface, or into which a shape-forming mandrel can be dipped. It would be desirable if the polymer could be rendered in the form of a gel because a gel, inter alia, can be molded, such as being extruded. In other words, the gel can be plastically shaped and can retain its molded shape without reverting to its original shape. Usually the molded shape is preserved so that the shaped polymer retains the new shape and will return to the new shape if deformed, provided that the elastic limit is not exceeded. Further, most of the above-discussed non-fibrous art results in a product that features a non-porous layer at least at some location in the product. Thus, the prior at does not seem to appreciate the desirability of a prosthesis such as a vascular graft containing channels or porosity extending continuously from the exterior surface to the luminal surface of the graft."
