Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of the GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis to treat an infrarenal aneurysm located in the abdominal aorta. Performance of the GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis will be judged by separate performance goals.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Aortic Aneurysm, Abdominal Device: GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The study design is a prospective, nonrandomized, international, multicenter study comprised of two parallel substudies. The total subject population will be 190 subjects with 80 subjects assigned to the Short Neck Substudy and 110 subjects to the High Neck Angulation Substudy.

This clinical study will include fifty-six sites in the US. Each enrolled subject will undergo periodic follow-up evaluations involving physical exams and contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scans at specific, protocol-defined intervals for a period of five years following the GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis implant. Each Substudy will be evaluated and reported independently from each other according to the Safety and Effectiveness Endpoints. No comparative analyses between these substudies are planned.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Short Neck Substudy
Subjects with abdominal aortic aneurysms having infrarenal aortic neck angulation ≤ 60˚ and infrarenal aortic neck length ≥10 mm treated with the GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis.
Device: GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis
Endovascular Aneurysm repair (EVAR) is a minimally invasive procedure designed to exclude an aneurysmal segment of the aorta from blood circulation. The EVAR procedure involves delivery of a stent- graft compressed onto a catheter to an aneurysmal segment of the aorta from a remote access site, generally the femoral artery. Arterial access may be done by either percutaneous or cut-down technique.

Experimental: High Neck Angulation Substudy
Subjects with abdominal aortic aneurysms having infrarenal aortic neck angulation > 60˚ and ≤ 90˚ and infrarenal aortic neck length ≥10 mm treated with the GORE® EXCLUDER® Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis.
