Endologix’s IntuiTrak demonstrated at the International Congress in Arizona


Thursday, 12 Feb 2009 12:14

A live-case demonstration of the Endologix’s new IntuiTrak Delivery System was featured at the International Congress XXII Endovascular Interventions conference in Scottsdale, US.


The procedure was performed by Dr Zvonimir Krajcer, Texas Heart Institute; Dr Edward Diethrich, Arizona Heart Institute; and Dr Venkatesh G Ramaiah, Arizona Heart Hospital. The endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm procedure was successfully performed with a percutaneous approach and local anesthesia.

IntuiTrak is a system developed for the minimally invasive delivery and deployment of the Powerlink stent graft. The device is currently in limited market release following FDA approval in October 2008. IntuiTrak’s novel design and deployment mechanism simplifies standard vascular delivery of the Powerlink and provides accuracy and control. According to Endologix, the low-profile delivery system features enhanced flexibility, advanced hemostasis control and a hydrophilic coating to facilitate smooth delivery, particularly in patients with limited or difficult vascular access. Additionally, the delivery catheter has an integrated sheath that minimises the need to exchange introducers, thereby having the potential to minimize vessel trauma and reduce overall procedure time.


"Due to its low-profile and integrated sheath, IntuiTrak is ideal for the percutaneous treatment of patients with AAA," said Krajcer. "I have used the new device in eight cases so far, and have experienced 100% technical success and exceptional patient outcomes."
