For the repair of infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA)

Designed to deliver exceptional flexibility, indicated for infrarenal neck angulations up to 90°1

The AnacondaTM AAA Stent Graft System is for the repair of infra-renal abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA).

Innovative ring stent technology combined with a flexible body delivers a sealing system that conforms naturally to the anatomy of your patient2.

The ability to fully reposition enables clinicians to deliver the system accurately to the target, even in challenging anatomy3.

Key Benefits of the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System

Fully Repositionable

The fully repositionable deployment system enables the relocation of the proximal ring stents for optimal positioning.6,7,8

Proactive Sealing System

The dual proximal ring stent design (1) with hooks (2) provides an excellent sealing function with positive fixation as an additional security against stent graft migration. 6,8

90° Aortic Neck CE Mark

The Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System is indicated to treat infra-renal neck angulations up to 90° with proven results within challenging anatomy.5,6

In addition, the multiple, independent ring stent design provides maximum flexibility to cater for varying patient anatomies and minimises the potential for kinking. 9

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Safety

The Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System was determined to be MR conditional (i.e. according to information provided in the following document: American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) International, Designation: F 2503-08).

Clinicians implanting the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System should follow Standard Practice for Marking Medical Devices and Other Items for Safety in the Magnetic Resonance Environment.

Non-clinical testing demonstrated that the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System is MR Conditional.
A patient with the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System can be scanned safely, immediately after placement under the following conditions:

  • Static magnetic field of 3-Tesla or less
  • Maximum spatial gradient field of 720-Gauss/cm or less
  • Maximum whole-body-averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 3-W/kg for 15 minutes of scanning

In non-clinical testing, the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System produced a temperature rise of less than or equal to 2.0°C at a maximum whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) of 3-W/kg for 15-minutes of MR scanning in a 3-Tesla MR system (Excite, HDx, Software 14X.M5, General Electric Healthcare, Milwaukee, WI).

MR image quality may be compromised if the area of interest is in the same area or relatively close to the position of the Anaconda™ AAA Stent Graft System.
