INDICATIONS FOR USE: Trunk-Ipsilateral Leg Endoprosthesis and Contralateral Leg Endoprosthesis Components. The GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis is intended to exclude the aneurysm from the blood circulation in patients diagnosed with infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) disease and who have appropriate anatomy as described below: Adequate iliac/femoral access; Infrarenal aortic neck treatment diameter range of 19–32 mm and a minimum aortic neck length of 15 mm; Proximal aortic neck angulation ≤ 60°; Iliac artery treatment diameter range of 8–25 mm and iliac distal vessel seal zone length of at least 10 mm. Aortic Extender Endoprosthesis and Iliac Extender Endoprosthesis Components. The Aortic and Iliac Extender Endoprostheses are intended to be used after deployment of the GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis. These extensions are intended to be used when additional length and/or sealing for aneurysmal exclusion is desired.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: The GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis is contraindicated in: patients with known sensitivities or allergies to the device materials; patients with a systemic infection who may be at increased risk of endovascular graft infection.
