Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Test Group
Patients diagnosed with a descending thoracic aortic aneurysm are considered candidates for the endovascular repair. The Talent Thoracic Stent Graft System is compressed and pre-loaded into the delivery system,which is inserted endoluminally via the femoral or iliac artery and tracked through the patient's vasculature to deliver the stent graft to the target site.
Device: Talent Thoracic Stent Graft System
endovascular repair of descending thoracic aneurysms using the Talent Thoracic Stent Graft System.
Other Name: Talent Thoracic Stent Graft System

Detailed Description:

A descending thoracic aneurysm is a bulge in the aorta. The aorta is a large blood vessel that carries blood away from your heart to organs in the rest of your body. Your aneurysm is caused by a weakening in the artery wall. If left untreated, this bulge may continue to grow larger and may ultimately rupture (break open) or extend in size to seriously affect other major arteries in the area. In this clinical study the Talent Thoracic Stent Graft will be placed inside your aorta to block the weakened part of the artery wall from the circulatory system.

Medtronic Vascular submitted a Pre-Market Application (PMA P070007) to the FDA on February 28, 2007, and received market approval for the Talent Stent Graft System on June 5, 2008. As a condition of approval, the FDA has requested a post-market trial. In collaboration with the FDA, Medtronic has designed a post-approval study to document the long-term performance of the Talent Stent Graft System under post market conditions.
