English to Portuguese translations [PRO] Medical - Medical: Cardiology / stent-graft
English term or phrase:extension cuff
1) In the case of an incomplete expansion being detected e leaks being present or not being present, an inflating balloon should be used to remodel the stent graft against the vessel wall e to remove wrinkles from the graft materials.
2) Major leaks that cannot be corrected by re-ballooning may be corrected by adding an extension cuff to the stent graft which has already been placed there.
