The implant itself is the same highly conformable endovascular prosthesis that has proven itself at treating aneurysms, transections, and Type B dissections of the descending thoracic aorta. It is the delivery mechanism for the implant that allows physicians to take full advantage of the prosthesis, allowing them more flexibility in the positioning and angulation. This is thanks to a two-stage deployment procedure that first expands the implant to an intermediate diameter and only later to full diameter, which allows blood to flow through while the prosthesis is placed.
