Further study details as provided by Cook:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All-cause Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Aortic Injury-related Mortality [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Any death determined by the independent clinical events committee to be causally related to the initial implant procedure, secondary intervention, or rupture of the transected aorta.

  • Device Success [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Technical success (successful access, deployment, and patency of the Zenith® TX2® Low Profile Endovascular Graft), and freedom from the following: device collapse, type I or type III endoleaks requiring reintervention, and conversion to open surgical repair.
