I asked about this when I went to see a vascular surgeon yesterday, and they said there is nothing like it and that it doesn't exist. Do you have more info or a source for this CureIous? Many thanks x
If it's in use for arteries, couldn't it be used off-label for veins? Or is the artery one on the market yet? It sounds very promising.
