Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)

Each year thousands of lives are threatened by deadly aortic aneurysms. Although an aneurysm can occur in any artery of the body, it is most common in the abdominal aorta. 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. 

Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

Abdominal wall reconstruction is the management of complex abdominal wall defects.

Aortoiliac Aneurysms and Common Iliac Artery Aneurysms

In approximately 25 percent of patients with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), the aneurysm extends into at least one of the common iliac arteries.1 These are referred to as aortoiliac aneurysms.

Atrial Septal Defects (ASD)

An atrial septal defect (ASD) is an abnormal hole (defect) in the wall (septum) between the heart's upper chambers (atria).

Biliary Disease

Treating patients with malignant biliary strictures requires the use of a strong, yet flexible endoprosthesis that can be placed both percutaneously and endoscopically in the biliary tract.

Carotid Artery Stenosis

Carotid artery stenting (CAS) as a viable therapy to treat carotid disease and stroke prevention is growing. One of the limitations of carotid stenting is the risk of liberating embolic particles during the procedure that could cause a stroke or compromise cognitive function.

Colon Disease

GORE® SEAMGUARD® Bioabsorbable Staple Line Reinforcement is indicated for use in surgical procedures involving soft tissue transection or resection with staple line reinforcement. This includes colon, colorectal, and small bowel procedures.


Preserving the vascular access site demands regular surgical revision because each case presents a unique challenge. That's why our comprehensive product line covers full graft, jump graft, suture, and patch revision with a variety of configurations.

Heart Defect

Open heart surgery is no longer the only available option to correct atrial septal defects in young children and in patients with complicating health factors. Today's health care providers are seeking safe and effective non- surgical options to close inter-atrial defects.


A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or part of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it. A hernia occurs when there is a weakness or tear in your abdominal wall as a result of aging, injury, a previous surgical incision, or a condition present at birth.

Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)

In approximately one out of every four individuals, the hole in the heart will remain open after birth. This is called a patent foramen ovale, or PFO. In most people, a PFO creates no symptoms and requires no treatment. However, in a small minority, a PFO may permit blood clots to pass from the right side of the heart to the left side, possibly leading to a stroke.

Peripheral Disease (PAD) (PVD)

Maintaining flow through the lower limb is one of the greatest challenges in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease. Our vascular family is made up of grafts for all stages of disease progression.

Portal Hypertension And Liver Disease

For patients with portal hypertension, the GORE® VIATORR® TIPS Endoprosthesis maintains significantly increased patency compared to bare metal stent alternatives.

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), traumatic aortic transection and aortic dissection.

There are many different diseases or injuries of the thoracic aorta. The most common categories are thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) which is a ballooning of the aorta, traumatic aortic transection which is a tear in the aorta wall, and aortic dissection where a small tear occurs in the inner layer of the aortic wall.

Thoracoabdominal aortic and pararenal abdominal aortic aneurysms

Thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) extend through the region of the visceral branch vessels while pararenal aortic aneurysms (PAAA) only extend up to the renal arteries, but do not include the visceral branch vessels. The treatment approach to both conditions is similar.  Endovascular repair, which is less invasive than open surgery, involves sealing off the aneurysm by placing a stent graft relining the aneurysm, making a new path for the blood to flow.

The GORE® EXCLUDER® Thoracoabdominal Branch Endoprosthesis (TAMBE) is an implantable branched device designed for use in patients with thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms and high-surgical risk patients with pararenal aortic aneurysms.  

TAMBE is the first FDA-approved,  off-the-shelf endovascular repair solution for treatment of complex aneurysmal disease involving the visceral aorta.   The complete device consists of several components which supply blood to the aorta, visceral branch vessel and lower limbs.  It features a modular design with studied compatibility with other Gore commercial devices. 

Venous Disease

Inferior vena cava syndrome, or IVCS, refers to a sequence of signs and symptoms related to obstruction or compression of the inferior vena cava (IVC), a large vein that carries blood from the lower and middle part of the body back to the heart. Iliofemoral venous obstruction is a partial or complete blockage of the iliac and femoral veins (In the pelvis and thigh).

Weight Loss Surgery

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), over 68% of the U.S. population is overweight or obese. Many are turning to bariatric surgery as a weight-loss method.
