Arizona Heart Institute First to Implant Powerlink XL in Phoenix, Arizona Since FDA Approval
Date:10/31/2008

New Device Expands Less Invasive Surgical Options for Patients with Aortic

Aneurysms

PHOENIX, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Arizona Heart Institute announced today that its Division of Vascular Surgery was the first to implant, in Phoenix, the Powerlink XL, a newly FDA-approved, minimally invasive device for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). The procedure was performed at Arizona Heart Hospital by Julio Rodriguez-Lopez, M.D., Vascular Surgeon and Director of Peripheral Vascular Services at Arizona Heart Institute and Arizona Heart Hospital, who repaired a 6 cm aneurysm in a patient having an aortic neck diameter of 30 mm.

AAA is a weakening in the wall of the abdominal aorta which results in a balloon-like enlargement. About 1.7 million Americans have AAAs, and the incidence of the condition increases with age. An enlarged AAA leaves the aorta vulnerable to rupture which can lead to internal bleeding and death in many cases. Ruptured AAA is the 13th leading cause of death in the United States. The minimally invasive treatment, called endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), is performed through a small incision in the groin with the device inserted through a catheter. Since the early 1990s, Arizona Heart Institute has pioneered the research and development of new devices for the treatment of AAA and has among the largest worldwide experience with the EVAR technique.

"The procedure with Powerlink XL was very successful and we are pleased to have this new technology available to treat our AAA patients with large diameter aortic necks," said Dr. Rodriguez. "The low-profile Powerlink System enables us to effectively treat AAA patients with challenging anatomy and lower the risk of surgical complications compared to invasive open surgery."

The Endologix Powerlink XL is an addition to the FDA-approved Powerlink System that allows for treatment of aortic necks up to 32 millimeters in diameter. The ne
