Jan 18th, 2020 - The Zenith TX2 Low Profile TAA Endovascular Graft extended study is to collect confirmatory safety and effectiveness data. The Zenith TX2 Low Profile TAA Endovascular Graft is indicated for the treatment of patients with a descending thoracic aort...
Oct 24th, 2018 - The endovascular method consists of the insertion of catheters (vinyl tubes) into both groin arteries. These catheters then allow positioning of artificial tubes or stent graft(s) into the diseased blood vessel without the need for major surgery w...
Sep 10th, 2018 - Patients undergoing elective repair of their thoracic aortic aneurysm will be randomized to a "prehabilitation" program prior to their surgery or to usual care. The prehabilitation program is self-directed program designed to improve health and qu...
Aug 31st, 2018 - The purpose of the Valiant Evo US Clinical Trial is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Valiant Evo Thoracic Stent Graft System in subjects with a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (DTAA) who are candidates for endovascular repair.
Aug 8th, 2018 - Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a type of aortopathy describing dilation of the proximal aortic dimensions including the aortic root, which is a risk factor for aortic dissection and sudden cardiac death. TAA and other forms of aortopathy (e.g. ...
