Femoropopliteal dissection repair using the Tack Endovascular System (6F, 3.5-6.0mm) following plain balloon angioplasty (POBA)


Dissection Resolution


12m K-M Freedom
from CD-TLR


12m K-M Primary Patency


Freedom from MAE
at 30 days


Tack implant treatment of post-PTA dissection was safe, produced reasonable patency, and resulted in low rates of target lesion revascularization

DESCRIPTION: This multi-center, post-CE mark study evaluated the performance of the Tack Endovascular System® in subjects with post-angioplasty dissections resulting from percutaneous transluminal balloon angioplasty of superficial femoral or popliteal arteries. There were 138 patients enrolled at 13 European sites and twelve-month follow up has been completed.

Twelve-month results were presented in Leipzig, Germany at the LINC Conference by Dr. Marc Bosiers and subsequently published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery. Additionally, twenty-four month results from a single-center in Heide, Germany were presented in New York, New York at the VEITHsymposium® by Dr. Christian Wissgott.

The results supported Intact Vascular’s decision to conduct an Investigational Device Exemption trial, called TOBA II, which has completed enrollment and is currently in follow-up phase.
