Lombard Medical’s Altura endovascular stent graft procedure successfully completed in live case at LINC


Lombard Medical’s Altura endograft system has been used to successfully treat a patient with an abdominal aortic aneurysm in a live clinical case presentation at the 12th annual Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC).

The Altura endograft system procedure was completed by Andrej Schmidt at the Leipzig University Hospital.

“From a physician’s perspective the Altura Endograft greatly simplifies procedural planning due to its unique design and sizing options,” says Schmidt.  “The device is very easy to use, can be repositioned, requires no time consuming cannulation and is delivered through a 14F ultra low profile delivery catheter.”

“We’d like to thank Andrej Schmidt and Dierk Scheinert for the opportunity to present the Altura Endograft’s revolutionary approach to EVAR at LINC 2016,” says Lombard CEO Simon Hubbert.  “We have chosen LINC as the platform upon which to officially launch Altura in Europe, and today’s live case is a significant milestone for the company as we begin our commercial launch in the UK and Germany.”
