Why to use it

The Tack Endovascular System® is a first-of-its-kind minimal metal implant that effectively repairs above- and below-the-knee dissections. It is positioned to be the new standard of care for optimized balloon angioplasty for patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI).

Less metal burden

Tack minimises vessel trauma by leaving less foreign material in the artery, eliminating chronic biological injury to healthy tissue.


Lower chronic outward force

Tack preserves the vessel’s natural configuration, future treatment options and –ultimately- limbs.


Adaptive size

Tack can be used across a range of vessel diameters as it adapts to tapering anatomy while maintaining a relatively constant radial force.  The 6F ATK Tack system contains 6 stents and covers vessels diameter from 4mm-8mm.  The 4F BTK Tack system contains 4 stents and covers vessel diameters from 1.5mm-4.5mm



The Tack endovascular system is purpose-built to repair peripheral arterial dissections following balloon angioplasty in ATK and BTK therapeutic interventions.


Focal treatment with minimal metal treats only the area where dissections are present and avoids covering portions of healthy tissue.


A Tack implant leaves behind significantly less metal than stents, preserving vessel integrity, future treatment options and —ultimately— limbs.
