Consult Instruction for Use

INDICATIONS FOR USE: The GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent is intended to improve luminal diameter in patients with symptomatic de-novo or restenotic lesions or occlusions in the native superficial femoral artery (SFA) and proximal popliteal artery (PPA) with reference vessel diameters ranging from 4.0 - 6.5 mm and lesion lengths up to 240 mm. 
CONTRAINDICATIONS: The GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent is contraindicated for non-compliant lesions where full expansion of an angioplasty balloon catheter was not achieved during pre-dilatation, or where lesions cannot be dilated sufficiently to allow passage of the delivery system. The GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent is contraindicated in patients with contraindication to antiplatelet and/or anticoagulation therapy. DO NOT use the GORE® TIGRIS® Vascular Stent in patients with known hypersensitivity to heparin, including those patients who have had a previous incident of Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) type II.
