The latest in a series of “firsts” for this thoracic stent-graft family, this milestone continues to underscore Gore’s commitment to advancing endovascular aortic repair therapies.

  • First to receive CE mark in Europe – 1998
  • First to obtain FDA approval – 2005
  • First to obtain approval in Japan – 2008
  • First FDA approval for isolated lesions including traumatic transections* – 2012
  • First FDA approval for aneurysms, transections, and all Type B dissections – 2013
  • First to reach 100,000 devices distributed – 2016

As the market-leading thoracic endovascular (TEVAR) treatment solution in the U.S. since 2011, the Conformable GORE TAG Device is indicated in most geographical regions for aneurysms, isolated lesions including traumatic transections, and Type B dissections. Designed to offer a thoracic endovascular treatment option, the GORE TAG Devices offer a less-invasive alternative to conventional therapy. The stent-graft family has demonstrated reduced operative mortality and morbidity, providing patients with a safe and effective alternative to open repair treatments.**

“Physicians desire a singular device with proven results and durability across all etiologies. Gore is always responsive to finding clinical and practical solutions for our practice,” said Mark A. Farber, MD, vascular surgeon (aortic specialist), Chapel Hill, North Carolina. “The magnitude of reaching such a large milestone exemplifies the adoption of the Conformable GORE TAG Device as the standard of care in TEVAR treatment.”

Dr. Farber will speak to this achievement at the 2016 Vascular Annual Meeting during his presentation, “Durable TEVAR: Results from 100,000 GORE TAG Thoracic Devices distributed worldwide,” on Friday, June 10, at 1:00 pm EDT. Click here for more details.

The GORE TAG Device family is the most studied thoracic stent-graft available. Since the first clinical implant in 1998, the GORE TAG Thoracic Device family has been studied in 10 U.S. Food & Drug Administration-consented clinical studies, one European clinical trial (ADSORB), and one worldwide registry (GREAT).

“Our thoracic stent-graft is the trusted solution for TEVAR procedures, with more than half of all physicians choosing the device for even the most complex cases,” said Ryan Takeuchi, aortic business unit leader at Gore. “This confidence has been built on our nearly two decades of working closely with physicians to evolve the device — pioneering thoracic endovascular aortic repair therapy and delivering conformability without compromise.”

The Conformable GORE TAG Device is part of the growing family of endovascular products that share a mission to effectively treat aortic disease, backed by Gore’s highly rated clinical support team and educational offerings. Earlier this year, Gore announced it has also achieved 250,000 patients treated*** with the GORE® EXCLUDER® AAA Endoprosthesis, a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), with a legacy of repositionability, durability, and patency.
