Gore launches Excluder study of iliac branch endoprosthesis
Gore's enrolls the 1st patient in a clinical trial of its Excluder iliac branch devices in treatment of patients with common iliac artery aneurysms.
W.L. Gore & Associates  this week enrolled its 1st patient in a study of its Excluder iliac branch devices, evaluating the implants in treatment of common iliac artery aneurysms or aorto-iliac aneurysms.
The prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, single-arm study is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of the devices, in conjunction with the Excluder AAA endoprosthesis, as it isolates the common iliac artery from systemic blood flow and preserves blood flow in the external iliac and internal iliac arteries.
