W. L. Gore & Associates, better known as just Gore, obtained European approval to introduce its GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Device. It was developed to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms in patients with tortuous anatomies that make placement of endoprostheses difficult. It should make more patients eligible for endovascular aneurysm repair.
The product takes design queues from Gore’s EXCLUDER AAA and Conformable GORE TAG devices, including the ability to apposition it in tortuous aortas and reposition as needed.
The GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA can be delivered even into vasculature with 90° turns, thanks to the newly introduced Active Control System, or aortic neck lengths of at least 10mm.
