Last verified: February 2010
The purpose of this study is to compare endovascular repair using any FDA approved Medtronic AAA Stent Graft System versus surveillance in subjects with smaller abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA)(4-5CM), with respect to AAA rupture and AAA related deaths.

Condition Intervention Phase
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Device: AneuRx AAA stent graft / Talent AAA stent graft Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Positive Impact of Endovascular Options for Treating Aneurysms Early (PIVOTAL)

Further study details as provided by Medtronic Vascular:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine whether repair of small aneurysms is superior to surveillance with respect to the frequency of rupture or aneurysm related deaths. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Aneurysm shrinkage or growth [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • Secondary endovascular procedures between the 30-day post treatment and 1-year follow-up. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Enrollment: 728
Study Start Date: March 2005
Study Completion Date: January 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: AneuRx AAA stent graft / Talent AAA stent graft
    Catheter based stent graft inserted to seal off an abdominal aortic aneurysm
