Turning the tables on remodeling

Todays standard surgical procedure leads to positive remodeling in only 25% of patients.
In the DARTS Trial, the AMDS resulted in positive remodeling in over 85% of patients and documented effective one-stage malperfusion treatment.

AMDS Clinical Benefits

Positive Aortic Remodeling

The AMDS was specifically designed to induce remodeling and healing of the aortic arch, which is- successfully demonstrated in the DARTS Trial. In addition to this , DARTS also documented positive remodeling of the descending aorta in 85% of patients.

Malperfusion Treatment

DARTS I documented effective one-stage treatment of dynamic malperfusion (cerebral, visceral extremity and spinal cord).

Improved Survival

DARTS I showed improved survival versus standard of care historical controls.

Case Examples

Closing the anastomotic entry tear tips the balance to positive remodeling—even in cases where there are additional entry tears.
