Proven across a broad range of complex cases, the versatility of the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis with Heparin Bioactive Surface* enables you to deliver high patency and durable outcomes to minimize reinterventions. Consider the types of cases you treat and the challenges they present; the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis helps you optimize clinical outcomes for your patients.
Arteriovenous (AV) Access
The GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis has proven success in the most challenging AV access cases, including early percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) failures, lesions at points of flexion, and in thrombosed grafts
Demonstrated patency independent of the number of prior interventions1
Increased primary patency in thrombosed grafts of both the target lesion and the circuit when compared to PTA1
Superficial femoral artery (SFA)
The GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis delivers strong clinical performance in the most challenging cases with 75% average primary patency demonstrated across five multicenter, prospective, randomized or single arm studies with an average lesion length of 22 cm and 72% chronic total occlusions (CTOs)2-6
Comparable clinical results to above knee surgical bypass (both prosthetic and native vein)2,7
Excellent patency and durability independent of lesion length2-6
In-stent restenosis (ISR) of the SFA
The GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis provides durable treatment for complex in-stent restenotic lesions
The GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis is the only self-expanding stent graft indicated to treat iliac lesions
The GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis family has demonstrated patency that approaches surgical bypass8-10
* Heparin Bioactive Surface is synonymous with the CBAS Heparin Surface.
** Across all uses, the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis has a reported fracture rate of <0.015% (data on file 2018; W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc; Flagstaff, AZ.)
