Gore has received the CE mark for the new large diameter 35mm trunk-ipsilateral leg and 36mm aortic extender components of the Gore Excluder AAA Endoprosthesis. The new components provide physicians with a new endovascular option to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms in patients with an infrarenal aortic inner neck diameter range of 30 to 32mm, which expands the overall treatment range to 19–32mm.
Compatible with an 18Fr GoreDrySeal Sheath, the new 35mm trunk-ipsilateral leg and 36mm aortic extender represent one of the lowest profiles for treating infrarenal aortic necks measuring up to 32mm in diameter.
“Having a wide range of sizing options available for various anatomies simplifies the decision making for interventionalists. This new size allows more patients with large aortic neck diameters to benefit from endovascular treatment,” said Mo Hamady, consultant Interventional Radiologist at St Mary’s Hospital, London.
“By expanding our sizing options to include larger anatomies, Gore now offers a complete range of sizes to treat differing anatomies with the preferred infrarenal placement,” said Ryan Takeuchi, Gore Aortic Business Leader. “Gore strives to provide superior performance through design. Our extended AAA sizing portfolio and innovative delivery solution simplifies the EVAR procedure for physicians and patients alike.”
