Gore Expands Sizing Options for Excluder AAA Endoprosthesis


December 6, 2011

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) expanded the range of diamater sizes for its Excluder AAA Endoprosthesis. The device, indicated for treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), is now available in 23 mm and 27 mm sizes. The new diameter devices provide physicians with the ability to repair AAAs in a wider range of anatomies eligible for minimally invasive endovascular AAA repair. The Excluder is an endovascular stent-graft that seals off the aneurysm and creates a new path for blood flow. The device is inserted through a small incision in the patient’s leg using a catheter-based delivery technique. Once the physician has positioned the graft in the diseased aorta, the C3 Delivery System uniquely and intuitively enables repositioning of the stent-graft. The ability to reposition the device may minimize complications that could occur if the graft needs to be moved after the initial deployment.
