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. Gore offers treatment options for both open surgical repair and catheter-based devices for minimally-invasive endovascular aneurysm repair.
Endovascular repair, which is less invasive than open surgery, involves relining the aorta to exclude (seal off) the aneurysm by placing an endovascular graft inside the diseased portion of aorta.
The GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis and the GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis are devices that allow for endovascular repair of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
The GORE® EXCLUDER® Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis is used in conjunction with the GORE® EXCLUDER® Devices and allows for endovascular repair of aortoiliac aneurysms and common iliac artery aneurysms.
With the only FDA-approved iliac branch solution, and durable outcomes with more than 25 years of EVAR experience, the GORE® EXCLUDER® Device family offers solutions physicians trust and patients count on.
