Title: CONTROLLED TISSUE INGROWTH STENT COVERING
Abstract:
A stent covering (20) includes a polymeric tube (22) having a first end (24), a second end (26) and a length (26) extending therebetween, the polymeric tube including an inner surface (28) defining a lumen (30) and an outer surface (32). A plurality of tissue ingrowth features (34) are formed on the outer surface of the polymeric tube, at least some of the plurality of tissue ingrowth features including polymeric loops that extend above the outer surface such that, once implanted, tissue can grow between the outer surface and the polymeric loops. A stent may include such a stent covering.
