ADVANCE Trial Summary

This trial is testing two different types of stents to see which is better at treating abdominal aortic aneurysms. Subjects will be given one of the two types of stents and then monitored over time.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults with abdominal aortic aneurysms large enough to require intervention, who can commit to follow-up visits. They must be suitable for both Medtronic Endurant and Gore Excluder stent graft systems. Those with connective tissue diseases, life expectancy under 3 years, severe kidney issues, or certain psychiatric conditions cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The ADVANCE Trial compares the performance of two stent graft systems—Medtronic Endurant and Gore Excluder—in treating abdominal aortic aneurysms. Participants are randomly assigned one of the treatments and monitored through imaging to assess outcomes.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects may include local complications at the implant site such as infection or bleeding, allergic reactions to materials or medications used during the procedure, blood vessel damage, and general risks associated with endovascular surgeries.
