A canine model of unilateral aortofemoral bypass was utilized to study periprosthetic infections in woven, knitted, and velour Dacron vascular prostheses. These studies suggest that physical configuration, porosity, and time of inoculation all are important variables when managing an infected prosthesis, although size of inoculum seems less important.
