Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
DTA patients
160 patients presenting with a disease of descending thoracic aorta(DTA)with an indication for endovascular treatment with Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft with the Captivia Delivery System and who meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria are intended to participate in this non-interventional.
Device: DTA patients (Valiant)
Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft Implantation
Other Name: TEVAR

Detailed Description:

Data regarding the use under routine practice of thoracic aortic stent grafts in France are expected by the French National Authority for Health (HAS). Therefore, in its opinion report from December 22, 2009, HAS makes the maintenance of reimbursement approval of each stent graft dependent on the presentation of results of a specific follow-up study carried out in a cohort of patients representative of the French population treated under real-life conditions of use. This prospective cohort study must involve patients implanted after registration on the LPPR (List of Products and Services qualifying for Reimbursement). The results of the follow-up study must be forwarded to the National Committee for Evaluation of Medical Devices and Health Technologies (CNEDiMTS) for examination once a year. The assessment of this follow-up could lead to the recommendation by CNEDiMTS to continue or stop the reimbursement of the concerned stent graft.

In France, The Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft with the Captivia Delivery System is registered on the LPPR for a period of 3 years since January 12, 2011. In order to comply with HAS expectations, Medtronic Bakken Research Center is setting up this long term non-interventional study on the Valiant Thoracic Stent Graft with the Captivia Delivery System.
