Brief Summary:
The objective of this post-market clinical follow-up study is to evaluate the clinical outcomes of patients receiving PhotoFix as a patch within a vascular repair or reconstruction procedure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Vascular Diseases Peripheral Arterial Disease Hemodialysis Access Failure (Disorder) Carotid Artery Diseases Abdominal Aortic Aneurism Device: PhotoFix Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
PhotoFix is prepared from bovine pericardium, which is stabilized using a dye-mediated photo-oxidation process and sterilized using aseptic processing techniques. The primary endpoint for patients with carotid artery stenosis (CAS) undergoing carotid endarterectomies (CEA) will be rate of ipsilateral central neurologic events; the primary endpoint for all other vascular procedures will be primary patency. The secondary endpoints include all-cause reoperation rate, device-related reoperation rate, explant rate, restenosis rate, secondary patency (hemodialysis access repair (HAR) only) and survival. A goal of 100 patients will be enrolled at approximately 10 sites. The enrollment period will span a minimum of 8 months from Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval and site activation. Candidates for this study are adults who require vascular repair or reconstruction surgery that necessitates the use of a patch. Patients will be consented pre-operatively and enrolled patients will be followed for approximately 6 months after PhotoFix surgery. Data will be collected at 5 time points: baseline (pre-operatively), intra-operatively, 1 month post-operatively, 3 months post-operatively, and 6 months post-operatively.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment
All patients will undergo a vascular repair or reconstruction surgery, which requires the use of PhotoFix. The surgical procedures will vary by patient and by underlying etiology. Therefore, PhotoFix implant sites will also vary. In all cases, PhotoFix will be implanted per the Instructions for Use (IFU).
Device: PhotoFix
PhotoFix Patch Implantation

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Central Neurologic Events [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    For cases of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) only: Percent of patients who experienced at least one of the central neurologic events of interest (transient ischemic attack, amaurosis fugax, stroke, carotid occlusion).

  2. Primary Patency [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    For all other procedures (non-CEAs): Time from PhotoFix implantation to the time when patency in the vessel is documented as lost. Loss of patency includes loss of previously palpable pulses, presentation of recurrent symptoms, a drop in ABI>0.15 in the case of lower limb artery repair, Doppler ultrasound findings of occlusion, angiography of the affected vessel or a combination of these. Loss of patency will also be considered if an intervention to restore or maintain patency is documented.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients surviving

  2. All-Cause Re-operation Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients requiring re-operations

  3. Device-Related Re-operation Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients requiring unplanned re-operations that are documented as possibly, probably or definitely, device-related.

  4. Explant Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients requiring device explants. Explants will include the removal of PhotoFix for any reason after implantation.

  5. Adverse Event Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients who experienced at least one adverse event.

  6. Restenosis Rate [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    Percent of patients who develop stenosis. Stenosis is considered as the recurrence of abnormal narrowing of an artery or vein after corrective surgery. Categorization of stenosis ≥ 50% will occur if data is available.

  7. Secondary Patency [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months, post-op ]
    For all hemodialysis access repairs only: Time from implantation to the point where the access is abandoned.
