AN IMPLANTABLE DEVICE DESIGNED TO BE PLACED AROUND A ENDOVASCULAR STENT GRAFT, TO CREATE PERFECT SEAL BETWEEN THE GRAFT AND THE VESSEL WALL
StentSeal™ is designed to improve the outcome of vascular surgery associated with the repair of the highly dangerous condition known as Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA).
Endovascular stents used to treat this condition can have fitting contraints due to the irregular inner surface of the diseased vessel, leading to blood leakage and stent failure.
StentSeal™ is designed for use with an endovascular stent graft, to create a perfect seal between the stent graft and the vessel wall, though its unique bi-layered properties.
StentSeal™ will add minimal volume to the external diameter of the pre-compressed and crimped stent.
StentSeal™ is designed to preferentially fill out any spaces between the outside of the stent-graft and the irregular inside wall of the diseased aorta.
The complication of ‘endoleak’ will be abolished and in addition, gap fill might be expected to aid with subsequent re-endothelialisation across the anastomosis, helping the graft incorporate more readily.
With a granted patent, StentSealTM technology is next in the pipeline of products to be developed by Newtec
