A Study in Patients With a Descending TAA or PAU Treated With the E-nya Thoracic Stent Graft System

Jul 22nd, 2021 - In this study, patients who receive an E-nya Thoracic Stent Graft for the endovascular treatment of descending thoracic aortic aneurysm or PAU will be observed. The E-nya Thoracic Stent Graft will be implanted in accordance with the instructions f...

Evaluation of the Valiant Mona LSA Thoracic Stent Graft System in Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms and Chronic Dissections

Aug 26th, 2020 - Stent graft coverage of the left subclavian artery (LSA) may be required to achieve an adequate landing zone in up to 40% of descending thoracic aneurysms (DTAs). To ensure adequate seal of currently available off-the-shelf stent grafts, 20 mm of ...

Is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea a Risk Factor for Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Expansion? A Prospective Cohort Study.

Mar 4th, 2020 - Thoracic aortic aneurysm An aortic aneurysm is defined as a localised dilatation of the aorta, which includes all three layers of the vessel, intima, media and adventitia. The incidence of thoracic aortic aneurysm is estimated to be six to ten cas...

Study of GSK1278863 to Reduce Ischemic Events in Patients Undergoing Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm Repair

Dec 7th, 2017 - This study will test the hypothesis that GSK1278863 will reduce neurologic, renal, and/or cardiac ischemia in patients undergoing elective descending thoracic aorta/thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm (DTA/TAAA) repair, a population known to be at hi...
