For Carotid Repair

Strong and Clinically Proven Carotid Repair.

The natural choice for carotid repair.

An extracellular matrix (ECM) derived from porcine small intestine submucosa (SIS), VasCure for Carotid Repair regulates the biologic healing response to decrease inflammation and stimulate formation of healthy tissue.2,3 VasCure conforms to the vascular anatomy to repair the defect and is hemostatic with minimal bleeding at suture lines.4 Unlike synthetic or cross-linked materials, the elastic modulus compliance approximates normal arteries.5

Physician Trust.

Surgeons rely on VasCure for vascular reconstruction and repair of the carotid artery. Patients can take comfort in knowing that carotid repair using VasCure has lower post procedure complication rates, such as pseudoaneurysm, thrombus, and restenosis when compared to complication rates compared to alternative patch materials reported in the literature.11 (Carotid Registry can be downloaded by clicking the link below.)

Benefits of VasCure for Carotid Repair.

  • SIS ECM material resistant to infection3,6,7
  • SIS ECM material demonstrated similar compliance to native arteries compared to autologous grafts or synthetic material11,12
  • Hemostatic with minimal bleeding at suture lines4
  • Resists calcification1

Healing the Body.

VasCure allows the body to regenerate healthy, site-specific tissue by employing the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.

Aziyo VasCure Product Features and Benefits
SIS ECM has demonstrated antimicrobial activity during remodeling and reduces an inflammatory response.2,3,6,9 VasCure is intended for vascular reconstruction and repair of the carotid arteries. VasCure may be used for closure following carotid endarterectomy and suture line buttressing when repairing vessels.

ECM. How It Works.



Once sutured to viable healthy tissue, VasCure creates a hospitable environment for the surrounding cells to migrate into the bioscaffold and start matrix turnover.3,4,9


The SIS ECM regulates the biologic healing to reduce inflammation and modulate healing to prevent excessive scar tissue formation.2,3 During remodeling, antimicrobial peptides are released and angiogenesis occurs.2,3,8


Post remodeling, healthy systemically connected vascularized tissue is formed.3,4,9,10
