We're sorry, but this trial is no longer enrolling volunteers.

Evaluation of the GORE® EXCLUDER® Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis for the Treatmentof Common Iliac Artery Aneurysms or Aorto-iliac Aneurysms.


The primary objective of this study was to estimate the safety of the 31 mm GORE EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis as compared to open surgical repair when used in the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms. A secondary objective was to compare device performance of the original GORE EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis to the 31mm EXCLUDER when used in the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms.
