Addressing SAC
Regression Factors
with Endurant

Endurant™ AAA stent graft has demonstrated low type I and type II endoleaks in broad patient anatomies, with3,4:

  • Accurate placement and controlled deployment*
  • Continuous seal, fixation, and graft conformability*
  • Durable hemostatic barrier and resistance against type II endoleaks5

Endurant II/IIs is Designed to Provide Continuous Seal in a Dynamic Environment

Methodology:
Radial force and micro-CT scans were tested by an independent lab to model Endurant's performance in the proximal seal zone through the cardiac cycle.

Results:
M-stent maintains even distribution of contact pressure, resulting in optimal conformability in a pulsatile environment.

EVAR Success

Aneurysm sac regression is a key indicator2 for EVAR success.

Dr. Ross Milner, Professor of Surgery, Co-director, Center for Aortic Diseases at the University of Chicago, discusses his thoughts on aneurysm sac regression post-EVAR.

A New Paradigm Shift

Hear physicians' thoughts on aneurysm sac regression post-EVAR ― watch the on-demand webcast.

  • Moderated by Prof. Jean-Pierre Becquemin, M.D.
  • Panel includes Prof. Hence Verhagen, M.D., Ph.D., Prof. Michel Reijnen, M.D., Ph.D., and Prof. Apostolos Tassiopoulos, M.D.

"If you have sac shrinkage in the first year, the need for secondary interventions and therefore the need for intensive follow-up is different than those that don’t shrink."

–Prof. Hence Verhagen

Clinical Evidence VQI Data

Latest data suggests aneurysm sac regression is associated with better long-term outcomes.2

Cohort that demonstrated sac regression at 1 year had significantly better outcomes than stable and expanding sac cohorts.

Endurant Data Sac Regression Associated with Better Long-term Outcomes

ENGAGE OUS registry confirms sac regression link to better long-term outcomes. Patients with regressing sacs at 1 year had statistically significant better FF from ACM and FF from secondary endovascular reinterventions than patients with stable or expanding sacs.6

Endurant Data Consistent High Sac Regression Rates

Endurant demonstrates consistent and high sac regression rates across straightforward and complex anatomies.

New data suggests that patients with sac regression at 1 year appear to continue to have sac regression at 5 years.*
