This study is devoted to a prestressed and hyperelastic tube representing a vascular graft subjected to combined deformations. The analysis is carried out for a neo-Hookean response augmented with unidirectional reinforcing that is characterized by a single additional constitutive parameter for strength of reinforcement. It is shown that the stress gradients can be reduced in presence of prestress. [S0021-8936(00)00101-X]
