Lombard Medical:  AORFIX™ Endovascular Stent Graft

The AORFIX™ is indicated for AAA endovascular procedures in patients with neck angulations up to 90° or tortuous iliac anatomies

The AORFIX™ ESG is the only stent graft with global approval for neck angulations up to 90°.

The halO Stent Technology™ provides a unique design:

  • Intelligent engineering expands the physicians’ reach to treat a wider range of anatomies with EVAR
  • Revolutionary technology combines circular and helical structures that provide the flexibility needed to treat tortuous anatomies
  • Ring body and helical limb structure incorporating halO Stent Technology,™ is designed to maintain patency in tortuous anatomies1
  • The circular design of the Aorfix™ Endovascular Stent Graft delivers unmatched flexibility while maintaining its luminal size — even in extreme angulations1
  • Designed to adapt to changing anatomy over time and accommodate pulsatile forces
  • Unique fish-mouth design facilitates a superior seal in changing neck morphologies
  • Self-expanding electropolished nitinol wires mould to uneven vessel walls for improved apposition and seal
  • Rigorous testing performed that simulates in situ movement in angulated anatomy2
    • Aorfix is tested to 400 million pulses at 90° angulation
    • 5-7% pulsatility per 100mmHg – equivalent to 10 years
  • A direct comparison of the PYTHAGORAS IDE data with various competitor IDE data shows the strength of the AORFIX™ clinical outcomes.
    • Results are unimpeded by the inclusion of patients with more challenging neck angulations significantly greater than 60°.3,4
