Technology

Low profile technology invented by Endoluminal Sciences warrants significant expansion of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) market by eliminating leaks and related challenges with endovascular devices.

 

50% of patients treated for AAAs remain anatomically unsuitable for Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR). These patients have complex anatomies, such as unfavourable necks (short necks and angulated necks), tortuosity, or difficult access. The current generation EVAR technology precludes patients with such anatomy from the benefits of endovascular treatment due to two key failure modes – endoleaks and migration. Another dominant issue is the access through diseased iliac arteries as a result of higher profile of the current generation endograft delivery systems.

At Endoluminal Sciences (ELS) we have developed a breakthrough technology that overcomes key anatomical limitations to make EVAR suitable for most patients with AAAs. The novel mechanism provides active sealing and fixation of current generation endografts in short and angulated necks, while enabling a striking reduction in profile to bring it down to the 12F range. This technology is designed to be easily adaptable to current endograft systems enabling retention of their superior deliverability characteristics and doing away with any learning curve for the physicians.
