A prospective, single-center, non-blind, non-randomized safety and feasibility study of the hybrid repair of thoracic aortic pathologies requiring repair of the aortic arch proximal to the origin of innominate artery.


The proposed Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) is to assess the safety and preliminary effectiveness of the simplified hybrid frozen elephant trunk repair technique Branched Stented Anastamosis Frozen Elephant Trunk Repair (B-SAFER) which involves a physician modified endovascular stentgraft to treat the proximal aorta in subjects with aortic disease involving multiple segments. The study will also evaluate the device functionality when using this operative technique for device implantation including multiple components.

Condition Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm, Aortic Dissection, Congenital Aortic Anomaly
Treatment B-SAFER
