A chronic arteriovenous (AV) blood access shunt has been developed in baboons. It is composed of silicone rubber tubing extensions bonded to vascular graft polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) cuffs, for creating anastomoses with the distal aorta and inferior vena cava. Following surgical implantation, shunts remain patent for months (X = 9 +/- 2.5 months) and provides long-term ex vivo access to non-anticoagulated blood (Mean Blood Flow = 312 +/- 69 mL/min).
