Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Standard EVAR (IntuiTrak)
EVAR using standard vascular exposure for access
Device: SEVAR (IntuiTrak)
Standard vascular exposure for access prior to EVAR
Other Name: IntuiTrak
Experimental: PEVAR (ProGlide closure)
Percutaneous EVAR facilitated by the ProGlide closure device
Device: PEVAR (ProGlide closure)
Percutaneous EVAR facilitated by the ProGlide closure device
Other Names:
  • IntuiTrak
  • ProGlide
Experimental: PEVAR (ProstarXL closure)
Percutaneous EVAR facilitated by the Prostar XL closure device
Device: PEVAR (Prostar XL closure)
Percutaneous EVAR facilitated by the Prostar XL closure device
Other Names:
  • IntuiTrak
  • Prostar XL

Detailed Description:

In >30 single center publications, percutaneous EVAR facilitated with the Prostar XL or ProGlide closure has been demonstrated to be feasible. To date, no multicenter, randomized controlled trials of the approach are available. Moreover, although the IntuiTrak System and the closure devices are commercially available in the US as FDA-approved devices, no EVAR device and no closure device is FDA approved for a totally percutaneous EVAR application.

The IntuiTrak System is indicated for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms with aortic necks ranging in size from 18mm to 32mm. The System includes a 19Fr integrated introducer sheath, which is designed to reduce exchanges, and may be particularly important in a percutaneous approach. Moreover, the device is the only currently approved EVAR device with a contralateral percutaneous (9Fr) indication.

Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm who are suitable candidates for endovascular repair using the IntuiTrak System and who meet the prospectively defined inclusion/exclusion criteria specific to the trial will be randomized to PEVAR or to standard EVAR using vascular exposure access in a ratio of 2:1. Physicians who are established experts in the field of percutaneous EVAR will participate in the trial.
