Intact Vascular and its investigators have completed enrollment and follow-up in the following three separate studies of the Tack Endovascular System®.

This multi-center, post-CE mark study evaluated the performance of the Tack Endovascular System® in subjects with post-angioplasty dissections resulting from percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty of superficial femoral or popliteal arteries. There were 138 patients enrolled at 13 European sites and twelve-month follow up has been completed.

Twelve-month results were presented in Leipzig, Germany at the LINC Conference by Dr. Marc Bosiers and subsequently published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. Additionally, twenty-four month results from a single-center in Heide, Germany were presented in New York, New York at the VEITHsymposium™ by Dr. Christian Wissgott.

The results supported Intact Vascular’s decision to conduct an Investigational Device Exemption trial, called TOBA II, which has completed enrollment and is currently in follow-up phase.

This was a multi-center study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the 4F Tack Endovascular System® in treating dissections that occur following Below-the-Knee (BTK) balloon angioplasty. There were 35 patients enrolled at 6 sites in Europe and New Zealand and twleve-month follow-up has been completed.

Twelve-month results were presented in Orlando, Florida at the SCAI Congress by Dr. Christian Wissgott.

This first-in-man study evaluated the safety and feasibility of using the Tack Endovascular System® in patients with vascular flaps in the infrainguinal arteries following angioplasty dissection.

The data demonstrated that the system was safe, and were published in the Journal of the American Journal of Cardiology: Cardiovascular Interventions.
