Procedure for Human Saphenous Veins Ex Vivo Perfusion and External Reinforcement Alban Longchamp*1, Florent Allagnat*2, Xavier Berard3, Florian Alonso2, Jacques-Antoine Haefliger2, Sébastien Deglise*4, Jean-Marc Corpataux*4 1 The mechanisms leading to the development of intimal hyperplasia (IH) and vein graft failure are still poorly understood.

Furthermore the efficiency of external mesh reinforcement to limit the development of IH was evaluated.
