Joseph B Sinnott: Vascular graft with removable sheath. Impra, Cahill Sutton & Thomas, September 21, 1993: US05246452 (112 worldwide citation)

A porous graft is provided with a non-porous coating or sheath which does not adhere to the graft. After the graft is implanted into the patient, circulation is restored through the graft. The sheath is left in place temporarily while blood works its way through the wall of the porous graft to the n ...
