The GORE cTAG conformable thoracic stent-graft with ACTIVE CONTROL system for the endovascular repair of a challenging thoracic aortic aneurysm
This is a case of 63 yrs old female with a very challenging TAA (7.8 cm, massive elongation of the aorta, short proximal neck and type III aortic arch), who was treated endovascularly with the new cTAG endograft. The proximal landing zone was extended through a left carotid subclavian bypass up to the LCCA and the device showed an excellent conformability to this challenging anatomy. In this video, all the important steps of TEVAR as well as of cTAG implantation are illustrated.
Nice job! I think that in such cases the new cTAG offers excellent stability and the advantage of fine repositioning since it deploys gradually in 2 step, the last of which from caudally to centrally, which is unique!
Great!the new cTAG is very good.the old/vintage cTAG was difficult to repositioning precisely.by the way,did you experience any RTAD(retrograde thoracic aorta dissection) after the old/vintage cTAG? Is there no RTAD in the new cTAG with active control?
No, I have not experienced any RTAD with the new cTAG. The same however for the old/vintage cTAG. Have you experienced the RTADs intraop or during the postop course!
Thank you! The new c TAG is very good.the old/vintage c TAG was difficult to repositioning precisely.by the way,did you experience any RTAD(retrograde thoracic aorta dissection) after the old/vintage c TAG? Is there no RTAD in the new c TAG with active control?
