ARBITER-II: AorfixTM Bifurcated Safety and Performance Trial: Phase II, Angulated Vessels
To assess the safety and performance of AorfixTM Stent Grafts in the treatment of Abdominal Aortic and Aorto-Iliac Aneurysm where a significant degree of vessel angulation exists at the neck of the aneurysm or in the common iliac arteries.
The AorfixTM Stent Graft is currently a CE-marked product indicated for AAA where the angle of the aneurysm is <65o. The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the bifurcated AorfixTM Stent Graft in the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms and aorto-iliac aneurysms, in infrarenal necks angulated > 60o (between 60 to 90 degrees) as measured by 3-dimensional reconstruction in order to widen the indication.
The investigation is a prospective open label, single arm, multi-centre clinical study. The study group will consist of 25 evaluable participants. In order to account for patients lost to follow up (estimated at approximately 20%) up to 30 patients will be enrolled in the study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
Aortic Aneurysm, Abdominal
An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the ABDOMINAL AORTA which gives rise to the visceral, the parietal, and the terminal (iliac) branches below the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.
Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.
To collect and analyze clinical follow-up data which can be used to assess the safety, efficacy, and durability of endovascular AAA repair with Zenith and Chuter-Gianturco stent-grafts.
This is a study to assess the safety and effectiveness of endovascular treatment of thoracoabdominal (TAAA) and paravisceral abdominal (PVAAA) aortic aneurysms. The investigational operat...
The purpose of this study is to assess the role of abdominal aneurysm and iliac aneurysm exclusion using an endovascular prosthesis.
The purpose of this study is to compare the cost effectiveness, quality of life and outcomes of the endovascular stent graft repair with the open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneury...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the role of fenestrated stent-grafts in the exclusion of abdominal aortic and thoracoabdominal aneurysms. The evaluation shall be conducted with su...
The chimney technique in endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (Ch-EVAR) involves placement of a stent or stent-graft parallel to the main aortic stent-graft to extend the proximal or distal sealing zon...
Improvements in endovascular technology and techniques have allowed us to treat patients in ways we never thought possible. Today, endovascular treatment of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms is asso...
Purpose: We report a single-center experience with the endovascular management of mycotic aortic aneurysms. Case reports: Four cases of mycotic aortic aneurysms are described; all treated with endovas...
PURPOSE: Intraoperative sac pressure was measured during endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) to evaluate the clinical significance of sac pressure measurement. METHODS: A microcathete...
PURPOSE: We conducted this study to compare the cost of open surgical repair (OR) with that of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)....
