A microporous polytetrafluoroethylene ("PTFE") endovascular graft which has a reinforcing structure integrally bound to the graft which permits radial expansion of the graft and stabilizes the graft against longitudinal compression upon application of an axial force thereto and against axial foreshortening upon radial expansion of the graft. The graft is particularly useful as a covering for an endovascular stent.
