Endovascular Prosthesis: Experimental Study and Clinical Use
Endovascular prostheses should be made of a special alloy capable of “remembering” shape. This characteristic requires the material, deformed at one temperature, to partially or completely restore its initial shape when warmed to a higher temperature; the phenomenon is based upon an invention by metallurgists in 1948 . In 1983 scientists reported on the experimental use of a nitinol spiral which could support the lumen of a vessel [1, 2].
