To determine the safety and effectiveness of PEVAR.
In >30 single center publications, percutaneous EVAR facilitated with the Prostar XL or ProGlide closure has been demonstrated to be feasible. To date, no multicenter, randomized controlled trials of the approach are available. Moreover, although the IntuiTrak System and the closure devices are commercially available in the US as FDA-approved devices, no EVAR device and no closure device is FDA approved for a totally percutaneous EVAR application.
The IntuiTrak System is indicated for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with aortic necks ranging in size from 18mm to 32mm. The System includes a 19Fr integrated introducer sheath, which is designed to reduce exchanges, and may be particularly important in a percutaneous approach. Moreover, the device is the only currently approved EVAR device with a contralateral percutaneous (9Fr) indication.
Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm who are suitable candidates for endovascular repair using the IntuiTrak System and who meet the prospectively defined inclusion/exclusion criteria specific to the trial will be randomized to PEVAR or to standard EVAR using vascular exposure access in a ratio of 2:1. Physicians who are established experts in the field of percutaneous EVAR will participate in the trial.

Surgical site infection (SSI) is one of the most frequent complications after stoma closure and the optimal skin closure technique is still not clear. The goal of this review was to compare outcomes w...
The closure of gaps within epithelia is an essential part of many physiological and pathological processes, such as embryonic development, organ remodeling and wound healing. Emerging evidence proved ...
The prophylactic closure of mucosal defects after endoscopic resection is known to prevent postoperative bleeding in colorectal lesions. However, closure of large mucosal defects is difficult with con...
The incidence of incisional hernia (IH) at ileostomy closure site has not been sufficiently evaluated. Temporary loop ileostomy is routinely used in patients after low anterior resection for rectal ca...
Coloboma is a sight-threatening congenital eye disease caused by a failure in optic fissure (OF) closure. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of Adamts16, a metalloproteinase, in OF clos...
The tendency to perceive an incomplete pattern or object as complete or whole. This includes the Gestalt Law of Closure.
Therapeutic closure of spaces caused by the extraction of teeth, the congenital absence of teeth, or the excessive space between teeth.
Heart murmurs which are systolic in timing. They occur between the first and the second HEART SOUNDS, between the closure of MITRAL VALVE and TRICUSPID VALVE and the closure of semilunar aortic and pulmonary valves. Systolic murmurs include ejection murmurs and regurgitant murmurs.
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)
Premature closure of one or more sutures of the skull.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
