Valor II: The Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft System Clinical Study

2014-08-27 03:41:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aorta is a large blood vessel that carries blood away from the heart to the organs in the rest of the body. An aneurysm is a weakening in the artery wall that will become a bulge in the aorta. If left untreated, this bulge may continue to grow larger and may rupture (break open) with fatal consequences. In this research study we are investigating a device that can be placed in the aorta to exclude the weakened part of the artery wall and restore blood flow. Information will be collected on the performance of the device for 5 years.

A novel method for prevention of stent graft-induced distal re-dissection after thoracic endovascular aortic repair for Type B aortic dissection.

Stent graft-induced distal re-dissection (SIDR) is a burdensome complication after thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) for Type B aortic dissection. We developed a novel method to prevent SIDR...

Spinal ischaemia after thoracic endovascular aortic repair with left subclavian artery sacrifice: is there a critical stent graft length?

Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) is used for treatment of thoracic aortic pathologies, but the covered stent graft can induce spinal ischaemia depending on the length used. The left subclav...

Management of expanding aortic arch aneurysm after hybrid endovascular and debranching repair.

Hybrid procedures are used to treat aneurysms of the transverse aortic arch (TAA), combining debranching of the brachiocephalic vessels with endovascular approaches. Continued enlargement of the aneur...

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.

An abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of the THORACIC AORTA. This proximal descending portion of aorta gives rise to the visceral and the parietal branches above the aortic hiatus at the diaphragm.

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.

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.
