Aptus Endosystems Releases New Aortic Aneurysm Repair Technology
The HeliFX Aortic Securement System from Aptus enables independent endograft fixation, and is designed to mimic the hand suturing performed during open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms. The system provides physicians with a novel technology to repair endovascular grafts that have migrated away from the implant site or have developed endoleaks. It is also indicated for those at risk of developing these complications, which are commonly seen after EVAR. In such cases, augmented fixation and/or sealing is required to regain or maintain effective aneurysm exclusion. The system also can be used during de novo (initial) EVAR procedures to enhance an endograft’s inherent fixation and sealing mechanisms.
The HeliFX Aortic Securement System received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) approval and CE Mark in 2011.
