An evaluation of the TALENT Aortic Cuff in patients with existing AneuRx stent grafts who have experienced sub-optimal stent graft outcomes and are not deemed suitable candidates for treatment with an AneuRx Aortic Cuff.

Condition Intervention
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms Device: TALENT Aortic Cuff Abdominal Stent Graft

Study Start Date: October 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2012
Primary Completion Date: July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: TALENT Aortic Cuff Abdominal Stent Graft
    Endovascular Aneurysm Repair
Detailed Description:
The primary purpose of this registry is to provide an endovascular means of treatment for those patients experiencing a sub-optimal outcome related to the implanted AneuRx bifurcated stent graft and who are not deemed suitable candidates for treatment with an AneuRx Aortic Cuff. A sub-optimal outcome is defined as either a Type I or Type III endoleak and/or an inadequate seal zone (< 1 cm). For Registry purposes, a Type III endoleak will be defined as a proximal modular endoleak.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient >= 18 years of age
  • Patient has a serious disease or condition
  • No generally acceptable alternative for treating patient is available
  • Patient has had the AneuRx stent graft system implanted >= 30 days
  • Patient has suboptimal outcome with the AneuRx stent graft system as evidenced by one or more of the following:
  • Type I endoleak
  • Type III endoleak (Proximal, modular)
  • Loss of seal zone
  • Proximal aortic neck diameter >= 14mm and <= 30mm
  • Angle between axis of the suprarenal aorta and aneurysm neck is <= 60 degrees
  • Patient is able and willing to be available for 12,24,26,48 and 60 months post-procedure

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient is pregnant of lactating
  • Arterial access cannot be crossed with a delivery system
  • Excessive vessel tortuosity
  • Excessive aortic calcification
  • AneuRx stent graft system implanted within the last 30 days
