ANCHOR (Aneurysm Treatment Using the Heli-FX Aortic Securement System Global Registry) (ANCHOR)

What is the purpose of this trial?

Subjects who meet inclusion/exclusion criteria and who are treated with the Aptus Heli-FX EndoAnchor System in conjunction with commercially available non-Aptus Endografts will be divided, as appropriate, into two groups.

  1. Primary Group- Subjects undergoing initial (primary) endovascular repair of an AAA where the investigator believes the proximal aortic neck is challenging such that the risk of failure or fixation and/or sealing is great enough so that the use of the Heli-FX EndoAnchor System is warranted.
  2. Revision Group- Those subjects who have previously undergone an EVAR procedure where the investigator believes that use of the Heli-FX EndoAnchor System is warranted to A- Treat existing graft migration and/or type 1a endoleak, with or without the concurrent use of other devices. B- Treat subjects believed to be at risk for migration and/or Type 1a endoleak

Subjects must sign an ICF prior to obtaining any study specific information. Subjects are eligible to be consented up to 30 days post-procedure.

Enrolled subjects will be followed as per local 'standard of care' for up to 5 years post procedure. Study recommended follow-up is per SVS and ESVS guidance.
