Resumo

OBJETIVO: Avaliar a resposta tissular a uma endoprótese, com cobertura biológica heteróloga, implantada em veia cava inferior de suínos. MÉTODO: Desenvolvemos uma endoprótese auto-expansível, revestida com um segmento de jugular bovina, conservada por processo L-hydro e suturada em um stent de aço inoxidável 316L. O dispositivo introdutor utilizado foi a bainha de liberação da endoprótese aórtica Taheri-Leonhardt (Flórida, EUA). Foram implantadas endopróteses em 10 suínos, todas na veia cava infra-renal. Os animais foram submetidos à flebografia peroperatória. À necropsia, após 2 meses, cada endoprótese foi retirada em bloco e analisada macroscopicamente, visando a avaliação da perviedade, aderência aos tecidos vizinhos e incorporação à parede venosa; e, histopatologicamente, visando a resposta histológica ao enxerto. RESULTADOS: Na análise macroscópica, todas as endopróteses encontravam-se pérvias e totalmente incorporadas à parede venosa, porém seis apresentavam trabeculações grosseiras no seu interior e quatro algum grau de fibrose perivascular. Três animais desenvolveram linfocele, uma retroperitoneal e as outras na parede abdominal. No estudo histopatológico, observamos reação inflamatória granulomatosa tipo corpo estranho em todos os casos, sendo predominante na camada média (80%). CONCLUSÃO: O modelo estudado apresentou baixa trombogenicidade, corroborando com a eficácia do meio de conservação e material escolhidos; porém, baixa biocompatibilidade, provavelmente pelo obstáculo imunológico dos xenoenxertos e resposta tissular exagerada do território venoso.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate tissue response to a bovine jugular vein covered stent when implanted in the swine inferior vena cava. METHOD: We developed a self-expanding stent, using a segment of L-hydro conserved bovine jugular vein, which was trimmed and sutured to a 316L stainless steel stent. We used the Taheri-Leonhardt delivery system for aortic stent-graft deployment (Florida, USA). Ten handmade stent-grafts were implanted in 10 swine inferior venae cavae. All animals were submitted to perioperative venography. At necropsy, 2 months later, the stent-grafts were removed en bloc and histopathologic analysis was undertaken, in order to analyze its patency, adherence to neighboring tissues and incorporation to the venous wall, as well as tissue response. RESULTS: All stent-grafts were patent and adherent to venous wall, but six presented with gross trabeculation and four had some degree of perivascular fibrosis at macroscopy. Three animals developed lymphocele, one in the retroperitoneal space and the others in the abdominal wall. At histopathology, we observed chronic inflammatory reaction with foreign body granulomatous response in all cases, with prevalence of the tunica media (80%). CONCLUSION: The model presented low thrombogenicity, which corroborates the efficacy of the chosen means of preservation and material. However, there was low compatibility, probably due to the immunological obstacle of xenografts and exaggerated tissue response of the venous territory.
