Aortic Aneurysm Repair Using Endovascular Surgery and Custom Made Devices

Description

Seeking men and women over the age of 18 who have been diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm (bulging of the vein that carries blood to your heart) that because of their anatomy can't be treated using an FDA-approved graft. This study would use endografts that are customized by the doctor to the anatomy of each patient to treat these complex aortic aneurysms.

Overview

We are collecting data to see whether endografts that are customized by the doctor for each patient are safe and effective for treatment of aortic aneurysm

What we're hoping for

We hope to provide data to assess whether doctor-customized endografts are safe and effective for treatment of complex aortic aneurysm.
