Surfacing artery

I have an iges file with an artery model.

The artery consists of many  surfaces (not solid).

I do not want to have many small surfaces cause this artery is going to be imported in ansys for meshing.

Imagine that my geometry is like a cylinder. I only want to have 3 surfaces and then from these surfaces generate a solid.

I tried by knitting  (using also  the button make solid ) but the final model had also the small surfaces too.

This causes me problem in ansys because it influences the mesh generation.

I would be very greatful if someone could suggest me something
