Further study details as provided by Endologix:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proximal Type I endoleak [ Time Frame: One year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Delivery success, deployment success, stent graft apposition to the vessel wall, device integrity, patency, occlusion, migration and Type III endoleak. [ Time Frame: One year ]

Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
Powerlink 34mm cuff stent graft
Device: Endologix Powerlink 34 mm stent graft cuff
Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair
Other Name: Endologix Powerlink 34mm cuff [model 34-34-80L]

Detailed Description:
The 34mm proximal extension stent graft is intended to augment the primary 28mm infrarenal bifurcated stent graft to accommodate patient anatomy (neck diameters up to 32mm) and provide an effective seal to prevent/repair proximal Type I endoleaks.

    • greater than or equal to twice the normal aortic outer diameter
    • rapidly growing (greater than or equal to 5mm over 6 months)
  • Proximal non-aneurysmal aortic neck fixation length greater than or equal to 1.5cm between the renal arteries and the aneurysm
  • Non-aneurysmal proximal aortic neck inner diameter between 23 and 32mm

  • Iliac arteries >90º angle
  • <1.5 cm of non-aneurysmal common iliac artery above the iliac bifurcation on both sides [One internal iliac artery is required to remain patent]
  • Thrombus >30% at implantation site
