Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Each year thousands of lives are threatened by deadly aortic aneurysms. We offer a variety of treatment options from the traditional grafts for open surgery to the minimally invasive, catheter-based devices that seal off and reline the artery walls.
Endovascular repair is a procedure for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Less invasive than open surgery, it involves excluding (sealing off) the aneurysm by placing an endovascular graft inside of the diseased aorta, making a new path for the blood to flow. The GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis remains inside the aorta permanently through the use of metal prongs, or anchors, as well as a tight fit (radial force) against the wall of the aorta.
