Open more possibilities with the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis

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 VIABAHN® Device helps you optimize clinical outcomes for your patients.

Not indicated for use in Canada.

Arteriovenous (AV) access

The VIABAHN® Device 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.

Designed to conform to challenging anatomy and proven to resist fractures

Learn More >

Demonstrated patency independent of the number of prior interventions1

Learn More >

Increased primary patency in thrombosed grafts of both the target lesion and the circuit when compared to PTA1

Learn More >

Superficial femoral artery (SFA)

The VIABAHN® Device delivers strong clinical performance in the most challenging cases with 80% average primary patency§ demonstrated across seven multicenter, prospective, randomized or single arm studies with an average lesion length of 23 cmII and 71% chronic total occlusions (CTOs).2-8

Comparable clinical results to above knee surgical bypass (both prosthetic and native vein)2,7

Excellent patency and durability independent of lesion length2-6

Learn More >

In-stent restenosis (ISR) of the SFA

The VIABAHN® Device provides durable treatment for complex in-stent restenotic lesions.

Ability to cover and seal disease, leading to durable outcomes in long, complex ISR

Learn More >

Iliac Artery

The VIABAHN® Device is the only self-expanding stent graft indicated to treat stenotic iliac lesions.

The GORE® VIABAHN® Device family has demonstrated patency that approaches surgical bypass.10-12

Not indicated for use in U.S.

Popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA)

The VIABAHN® Device shows strong clinical performance in challenging PAA cases.

Endovascular repair of popliteal aneurysms is associated with acceptable long-term patency and a very low risk of limb loss.11
