AORTIC ARCH ANEURYSMS AND DISSECTIONS REPRESENT AN IMMEDIATE DANGER TO THE PATIENT. THE USUAL TECHNIQUES – EXTRA-CORPOREAL CIRCULATION, OPEN SURGERY – ARE UNSUITABLE FOR SOME PATIENTS, PARTICULARLY AGED AND MULTI-PATHOLOGICAL PATIENTS.
Medical devices unsuited to pathologies of the Aortic Arch in certain patients.
The endoprostheses used to treat aneurysms and dissections of the Aortic Arch are introduced by an iliac artery approach.
The results obtained with this type of intervention are relatively disappointing with a morbidity/mortality rate of approximately 18%.
ID Arterial System helps to render the surgical procedure more reliable.
In line with current procedure, the ID Arch fenestrated endoprosthesis is introduced through the iliac artery. ID CovBranch endoprostheses are then introduced via the subclavian or carotid arteries to be connected directly to the ID Arch via the fenestrations. The specific shape of the ID CovBranch enables compliant connection that respects anatomical movements (displacement of the aortic arch by approximately 5 mm with each systole).
The flat spring fitted to the fenestrations in the ID Arch endoprosthesis ensures the tightness and solidity of the connection.
