A warp-knitted fabric has pile loops on both faces thereof. The loops on both faces are continuous with each other so that when the fabric is used as a prosthesis, growth of tissue from one face to the other is facilitated. This feature is particularly significant when the fabric is fashioned into tubular form, whether straight or bifurcated. The structure of the fabric is such that a desired degree of rigidity is obtained with a thinner fabric than has hitherto been the case.
