From Which Medical Device

This stent graft from Medtronic is designed for the descending thoracic aorta.

  • Nonaneurysmal aortic diameter in the range of 18 mm to 42 mm (fusiform and saccular aneurysms/penetrating ulcers), 18 mm to 44 mm (blunt traumatic aortic injuries), or 20 mm to 44 mm (dissections); and
  • Nonaneurysmal aortic proximal and distal neck lengths ≥20 mm (fusiform and saccular aneurysms/penetrating ulcers), landing zone ≥20 mm proximal to the primary entry tear (blunt traumatic aortic injuries, dissections). The proximal extent of the landing zone must not be dissected.

These are the claimed advantages of their Captivia delivery system:

  1. Proximal FreeFlo configuration: The proximal 8-peak FreeFlo configuration evenly distributes radial force over multiple apices.
  2. Enhanced conformability: Absence of a longitudinal bar allows for enhanced flexibility and kink resistance.
  3. Visible markers: Platinum iridium Figur8 markers provide high visibility for accurate placement.
  4. Broad selection of pieces: Broad selection of proximal and distal components leads to many combinations to customize for a variety of patients.
