Fifteen Japanese Lombard Aorfix procedures with Intelliflex LP delivery system successfully completed

Lombards’ IntelliFlex system

Physicians in Japan have successfully treated the first 15 patients using Lombard’s new Intelliflex LP delivery system for the Aorfix endovascular stent graft since its launch on February 1, 2017.

Intelliflex is used in conjunction with the Aorfix endovascular stent graft, the only abdominal aortic aneurysm stent graft with global regulatory approvals to treat aortic neck angulation up to 90 degrees. IntelliFlex is designed to be easy and intuitive to use, is low profile and compact, and incorporates numerous ergonomic features designed in collaboration with physicians.

Naoki Toya, consultant vascular surgeon, Tokyo Jikei University Kashiwa Hospital, Tokyo, Japan, comments, “We have had good experience with the Aorfix stent graft and now, following our initial cases with the new Intelliflex delivery system, we are extremely impressed by the control and precision of placement with the new technology.”

Aorfix with Intelliflex is distributed in Japan by Medico’s Hirata.
