The INCRAFT® AAA Stent Graft System is the advanced endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) technology for the treatment of infrarenal abdominal aneurysms.This new system is designed to address the unmet needs of current endografts by combining unique features and adding new refinements compared to existing endografts delivered through a flexible 14-Fr ultra-low system. The INCRAFT® AAA Stent Graft System introduces innovative features without deviating from proven stent-graft design principles. It is a three-piece modular system, made of low porosity polyester and segmented nitinol stents. However, the introduction of cap-free delivery and partial proximal repositioning enhances the ability of the device to better match individual aortoiliac anatomy with a high deliverability and placement accuracy in a easy to use system. Moreover, the INCRAFT® System allows a "customization" of the implant during the procedure with bilateral in-situ length adjustment features. The present data from the ongoing clinical trials confirm excellent results with this system, but postmarket studies will be necessary to verify the effectiveness of this system in the real-world setting.
