The Tack Endovascular System® was conceived by Dr. Peter Schneider, a renowned vascular surgeon, to complement POBA and DCB angioplasty procedures and repair peripheral arterial dissections. His belief that a device using less metal and less force than conventional stents would improve angioplasty outcomes, yield better healing, preserve retreatment options and help preserve limbs.

Post-angioplasty dissection treated with a Tack® implant.

Tack Endovascular System (6F) FDA approved for SFA and proximal popliteal (3.5-6.0mm RVD) treatment of post-PTA dissections. Tack Endovascular System (4F) limited by federal (United States) law to investigational use. Not available for sale in the United States.

Purpose-Built: The Tack Endovascular System is purpose-built to repair peripheral arterial dissections following balloon angioplasty in either above- or below-the-knee therapeutic interventions.

Precision Repair: The Tack® implant is a first-of-its-kind dissection repair device that offers the advantage of focal treatment with minimal metal, treating only the area where dissections are present and avoids covering portions of healthy tissue.

Preserves Options: A Tack implant leaves behind >70% less metal than stents1, preserving vessel integrity, future treatment options and ultimately, limbs.
