Product Value—GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis

Clinical and economic value in dialysis access

GORE VIABAHN Endoprosthesis

For end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients who require regular hemodialysis, maintaining a functioning dialysis access circuit is essential.

In patients who use arteriovenous (AV) grafts for hemodialysis, the GORE® VIABAHN® Endoprosthesis with Heparin Bioactive Surface* can increase clinical value by improving patency1 and reducing the number of future interventions when compared to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA).2  

When treating one of the most common complication of AV grafts, the VIABAHN® Device demonstrated 40% fewer future interventions2 which resulted in an 18% reduction of total costs over 2 years compared to PTA ($30,329 versus $37,206; P = .027)2.

18% reduction of total costs versus PTA over 2 years:
$30,329 versus $37,206 per patient (P = .027)2

† AV graft thrombosis occurs when blood stops flowing through the AV graft, resulting in an inability to perform hemodialysis treatment.  In the Gore REVISE Clinical Study, graft thrombosis was the most common indication for patient enrollment.1
