Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft System

Brief Statement

Indications
The Endurant™ II/Endurant™ IIs bifurcated stent graft is indicated for the endovascular treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic or aorto-iliac aneurysms. The Endurant II aorto-uni-iliac (AUI) stent graft is indicated for the endovascular treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic or aortoiliac aneurysms in patients whose anatomy does not allow the use of a bifurcated stent graft. The Endurant II/Endurant IIs stent graft system is indicated for use in patients with the following characteristics:

  • Adequate iliac/femoral access that is compatible with vascular access techniques, devices and/or accessories
  • Proximal neck length of ≥10 mm
  • Infrarenal neck angulation of ≤60°
  • Aortic neck diameters with a range of 19 to 32 mm
  • Distal fixation length(s) of ≥15 mm
  • Iliac diameters with a range of 8 to 25 mm
  • Morphology suitable for aneurysm repair

Contraindications
The Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft System is contraindicated in:

  • Patients who have a condition that threatens to infect the graft
  • Patients with known sensitivities or allergies to the device materials

Warnings and Precautions

  • The long-term safety and effectiveness of the Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft System has not been established. All patients should be advised that endovascular treatment requires lifelong, regular follow-up to assess the health and the performance of the implanted endovascular stent graft. Patients with specific clinical findings (e.g., endoleaks, enlarging aneurysms or changes in the structure or position of the endovascular graft) should receive enhanced follow-up. Specific follow-up guidelines are described in the Instructions for Use.
  • Patients experiencing reduced blood flow through the graft limb, aneurysm expansion, and persistent endoleaks may be required to undergo secondary interventions or surgical procedures.
  • The Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft System is not recommended in patients unable to undergo or who will not be compliant with the necessary preoperative and postoperative imaging and implantation studies as described in the Instructions for Use.
  • Renal complications may occur: 1) From an excess use of contrast agents. 2) As a result of emboli or a misplaced stent graft. The radiopaque marker along the edge of the stent graft should be aligned immediately below the lower-most renal arterial origin.
  • Studies indicate that the danger of micro-embolization increases with increased duration of the procedure.
  • The safety and effectiveness of the Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft System has not been evaluated in some patient populations. Please refer to the product Instructions for Use for details.

MRI Safety and Compatibility
Non-clinical testing has demonstrated that the Endurant II/Endurant IIs Stent Graft is MR Conditional. It can be scanned safely in both 1.5T & 3.0T MR systems under certain conditions as described in the product Instructions for Use. For additional information regarding MRI please refer to the product Instructions for Use.

Heli-FX & Heli-FX Thoracic EndoAnchor Systems

Reference Statement

Indications for Use
The Aptus Heli-FX™ EndoAnchor™ System is intended to provide fixation and sealing between endovascular aortic grafts and the native artery. The Aptus Heli-FX EndoAnchor System is indicated for use in patients whose endovascular grafts have exhibited migration or endoleak, or are at risk of such complications, in whom augmented radial fixation and/or sealing is required to regain or maintain adequate aneurysm exclusion. The EndoAnchor may be implanted at the time of the initial endograft placement, or during a secondary (i.e. repair) procedure.

Contraindications
Treatment with the Aptus Heli-FX EndoAnchor System is contraindicated for use in the following circumstances:

  • In patients with known allergies to the EndoAnchor Implant material (MP35N-LT)
  • In conjunction with the Endologix Powerlink® endograft

Warnings

  • The long term performance of the EndoAnchor has not been established. All patients should be advised endovascular aneurysm treatment requires long-term, regular follow-up to assess the patient's health status and endograft performance, and the EndoAnchor does not reduce this requirement.
  • The EndoAnchor implant and the Aptus Heli-FX EndoAnchor System have been evaluated via in vitro testing and determined to be compatible with the Cook Zenith®, Cook Zenith TX2®, Gore Excluder®, Gore TAG®, Medtronic AneuRx™, Medtronic Endurant™, Medtronic Talent™, and Medtronic Valiant™ endografts. Use with endografts other than those listed above has not been evaluated.
  • The performance of the EndoAnchor has not been evaluated for securing multiple endograft components to one another. Without EndoAnchor securement into aortic tissue, this could result in graft fabric damage, component separation, and resultant Type III endoleaks.
  • The performance of the EndoAnchor has not been evaluated in vessels other than the aorta. Use of the EndoAnchor to secure endografts to other vessels may result in adverse patient consequences such as vascular perforation, bleeding, or damage to adjacent structures.
  • The Aptus EndoAnchor has not been evaluated for securing multiple anatomical structures together. Such use could result in adverse patient consequences such as vascular perforation, bleeding, or embolic events.

MRI Safety and Compatibility

  • The EndoAnchors have been determined to be MR Conditional at 3T or less when the scanner is in Normal Operating Mode with whole body averaged SAR of 2 W/kg, or in First Level Controlled Mode with a maximum whole body averaged SAR of 4 W/kg.
  • Please refer to documentation provided by the endograft system manufacturer for MR safety status of the endograft system with which the EndoAnchors are being used.

Potential Adverse Events
Possible adverse events associated with the use of Aptus Heli-FX EndoAnchor include, but are not limited to:

  • Aneurysm rupture
  • Death
  • EndoAnchor embolization
  • Endoleaks (Type III)
  • Enteric fistula
  • Failure to correct/prevent Type I endoleak
  • Failure to prevent endograft migration
  • Infection
  • Renal complications (renal artery occlusion/dissection or contrast-induced AKI)
  • Stroke
  • Surgical conversion to open repair
  • Vascular access complications, including infection, pain, hematoma, pseudoaneurysm, arteriovenous fistula
  • Vessel damage, including dissection, perforation, and spasm

Please reference product Instructions for Use for more information regarding indications, warnings, precautions, contraindications and adverse events.

Caution: Swedish law restricts these devices to sale by or on the order of a licensed healthcare practitioner. See package inserts for full product information.

Caution: EndoAnchor implant locations should be based upon a detailed examination of the preoperative CT imaging in cases involving irregular or eccentric plaque in the intended sealing zone(s). EndoAnchors should be implanted only into areas of aortic tissue free of calcified plaque or thrombus, or where such pathology is diffuse and less than 2mm in thickness. Attempting to place EndoAnchors into more severe plaque or thrombus may be associated with implantation difficulty and suboptimal endograft fixation and/or sealing.

Warnings and Precautions
The long-term safety and effectiveness of the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft with the Captivia Delivery System has not been established. All patients should be advised that endovascular treatment requires lifelong, regular follow-up to assess the integrity and performance of the implanted endovascular stent graft. Patients with specific clinical findings (for example, enlarging aneurysm, endoleaks, migration, inadequate seal zone, or continued flow into the false lumen in the case of a dissection) should receive enhanced follow-up.

Strict adherence to the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft sizing guidelines as described in the Instructions for Use is expected when selecting the device size. Sizing outside of this range can potentially result in endoleak, fracture, migration, infolding, or graft wear. As cautioned in the Instructions for Use, a balloon should never be used when treating a dissection. The safety and effectiveness of the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft with the Captivia Delivery System has not been evaluated in some patient populations. Please refer to the product Instructions for Use for details.

MRI Safety and Compatibility
Non-clinical testing has demonstrated that the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft is MR Conditional.
