Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: 30 Days ]
    Major Adverse Events = all cause death; bowel ischemia; myocardial infarction; paraplegia; renal failure; respiratory complications of stroke; blood loss >1000cc

  • Effectiveness [ Time Frame: 1 Year ]
    Treatment Success=Procedural technical success and absence of aneurysm rupture, conversion to open repair, Type I endoleak after 30 days, Type III endoleak, clinically significant migration; aneurysm enlargement; or secondary intervention for resolution of endoleak, limb occlusion, migration, aneurysm sac expansion and/or a device defect

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety [ Time Frame: >30 Days to 5 Years ]
    Major Adverse Events = all cause death; bowel ischemia; myocardial infarction; paraplegia; renal failure; respiratory complications of stroke; blood loss >1000cc

  • Distal Blood Flow [ Time Frame: Discharge to 5 Years ]
    Ankle-brachial index measurements

  • Renal Dysfunction [ Time Frame: Discharge to 5 Years ]
    eGFR reduction >30% from baseline

  • Device Performance [ Time Frame: 30 Days to 5 Years ]
    Aortic, fenestrated, and renal stent graft integrity and patency; migration; endoleak; and aneurysm sac morphology

  • Clinical Utility Outcomes [ Time Frame: At the time of the procedure ]
    Clinical Utility Outcomes consists of: anesthesia time; fluoroscopy time; contrast volume; estimated blood loss; % requiring transfusion; procedure time

  • Time in ICU [ Time Frame: In-Hospital ]
    Number of hours spent in the intensive care unit (ICU)

  • Time to Hospital Discharge [ Time Frame: Hospital Discharge (Post-Procedure) ]
    Number of days from the index procedure to discharge from the hospital.

Estimated Enrollment: 122
Study Start Date: March 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
