The Tack Endovascular System is a first-of-its-kind dissection repair device that is purpose-built and designed to provide precision treatment of peripheral arterial dissections following balloon angioplasty, in either above- or below-the-knee therapeutic interventions.

Tack implants are designed to adapt to different vessel sizes while maintaining a relatively constant radial force, so that a single size Tack works for a range of vessel diameters. The systems are pre-loaded with “4 or 6” self-expanding nitinol devices that can be deployed to treat multiple dissections using a single catheter and leave behind 70-81% less metal than stents.1

Design Features

6F system designed for above-the-knee (ATK) interventions

  • 6F/.035” ATK system
  • 6 pre-loaded 6F Tacks
  • Adapts to treat vessel diameters from 2.5-6.0mm with a single system
  • Nitinol with gold radiopaque (RO) markers
  • Anchors designed to minimize migration

4F system designed for below-the-knee (BTK) interventions

  • 4F/.014” BTK system
  • 4 pre-loaded 4F Tacks
  • Adapts to treat vessel diameters from 1.5-4.5mm with a single system
  • Nitinol with gold radiopaque (RO) markers
  • Anchors designed to minimize migration

High-Precision
Delivery System

  • Standard over-the-wire delivery system
  • Design permits accurate (~1mm) Tack deployment
CAUTION: Investigational device. Limited by federal (United States) law to investigational use. Not available for sale in the United States.
