Aortic aneurysm treatment device

Summary of the technology

A new improved device for the treatment of aortic aneurysm, which solves the surgical problems of current alternatives.
-Universality, it can be used in any anatomy.
-It has a lower learning curve, as the same system can be used for all patients. Ease of use.
-Speed, it is not necessary to make a customized stent for each patient, thus reducing the waiting time for the surgery to be performed.
-Thanks to the smaller diameter, the implantation procedure could be performed under local anesthesia and by arterial puncture, and used in the most unfavorable anatomies.

Details of the Technology Offer

An aortic aneurysm is a localized dilation that causes weakness in the artery’s wall. In the absence of treatment, the aneurysm tends to grow progressively, which increases the risk of a rupture and a massive internal hemorrhage. Visceral and thoracoabdominal aorta aneurysms are dilatations with a high risk of rupture that affect the exit of vessels that irrigate the viscera. Currently there is a wide variety of treatments for this disease, but with high inconveniences (aggressiveness, side effects or high cost).

To avoid actual problems, the researcher has proposed a new improved device designed specifically for the treatment of the aortic aneurysm, which solves the possible surgical problems associated with other types of treatments. It is a Universal system (can be used in every anatomies), Easy system (reduce learning curve), Quick (customized manufacture is not needed), and the procedure could be performed under local anesthesia. The device comprises two stents, one external stent and other internal stent, and an injection system which inject a thrombogenic material between two stens.
