Contraindications The Talent Thoracic is contraindicated in: Patients who have a condition that threatens to infect the graft. Patients with sensitivities or allergies to the device materials. Warnings and Precautions Read all instructions carefully. Failure to properly follow the instructions, warnings and precautions may lead to serious consequences or injury to the patient. The Talent Thoracic System should only be used by physicians and teams trained in vascular interventional techniques, including training in the use of this device. Specific training expectations are described in the Instructions for Use. Always have a vascular surgery team available during implantation or reintervention procedures in the event that conversion to open surgical repair is necessary. Do not attempt to use the Talent Thoracic with the Xcelerant Delivery System in patients unable to undergo the necessary preoperative and postoperative imaging and implantation studies as described in the Instructions for Use. The Talent Thoracic System is not recommended in patients who cannot tolerate contrast agents necessary for intra-operative and post-operative follow-up imaging. The Talent Thoracic System is not recommended in patients exceeding weight and/or size limits which compromise or prevent the necessary imaging requirements as described in the Instructions for Use. Prior to the procedure, pre-operative planning for access and placement should be performed. Key anatomic elements that may affect successful exclusion of the aneurysm include severe neck angulation, short aortic neck(s) and significant thrombus and/or calcium at the arterial implantation sites. In the presence of anatomical limitations, a longer neck length may be required to obtain adequate sealing and fixation. See Instructions for Use. The use of this device requires administration of radiographic agents. Patients with pre-existing renal insufficiency may have an increased risk of renal failure postoperatively. The safety and effectiveness of this device in the treatment of dissections have not been established. In the first 10 years of clinical experience (OUScommercial and US investigational), there were 39 Medtronic Vascular Product Services 3576 Unocal Place Telephone: Santa Rosa, CA Fax: USA Telephone: reported events of retrograde dissection in patients. Of the 39 reported events, 33 patients had a preexisting aortic dissection. Inappropriate patient selection may contribute to poor device performance. The long-term safety and effectiveness of this implant have not been established. All patients with endovascular aneurysm repair must undergo periodic imaging to evaluate the stent graft and aneurysm size. Significant aneurysm enlargement (> 5 mm), the appearance of a new endoleak, or migration resulting in an inadequate seal zone should prompt further investigation and may indicate the need for additional intervention or surgical conversion. Intervention or conversion to standard open surgical repair following initial endovascular repair should be considered for patients experiencing enlarging aneurysms and/or endoleak. An increase in aneurysm size and/or persistent endoleak may lead to aneurysm rupture. The safety and effectiveness of the Talent Thoracic System have not been evaluated in some patient populations. Please refer to the product Instructions for Use for details. MRI Safety and Compatibility Non-clinical testing has demonstrated that the Talent Thoracic is MR Conditional. It can be scanned safely in both 1.5T & 3.0T MR systems under certain conditions as described in the product Instructions for Use. For additional information regarding MRI please refer to the product Instructions for Use. Adverse Events Potential adverse events include (not arranged in any particular order): Amputation, Aneurysm Enlargement, Balloon rupture, Breakage of the metal portion of the device, Cardiac Failure/Infarction, Change in mental status, Conversion to open surgery, Death, Deployment difficulties, Edema, Embolization, Endoleak, Erectile Dysfunction, Erosion with fistula or pseudoaneurysm, Failure to deploy, Gastrointestinal complications, including: adynamic ileus, bowel (ileus, transient ischemic, infarction, necrosis), Graft twisting and/or kinking, Hemorrhage/Bleeding, Inaccurate placement, Infection and fever, Insertion and removal difficulties, Intercostal pain, Neurological complications, including: spinal cord ischemia with paraplegia, paraparesis and/ or paresthesia, Cerebral Vascular Accidents (CVA), Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA), neuropathy, and blindness, Prosthetic thrombosis, Pulmonary complications, Renal failure, Rupture of graft material, Ruptured vessel/aneurysm sac enlargement, Stent graft migration, Vascular complications including: thrombosis, thromboembolism, occlusion (arterial and venous), vessel dissection or perforation, collateral vessel occlusion, vascular ischemia, tissue necrosis, amputation, Wound healing complications. Please reference product Instructions for Use for more information regarding indications, warnings, precautions, contraindications and adverse events. CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. Notes: a. The Vascular Talent Thoracic System for the Treatment of Thoracic Aortic Aneurysms (VALOR) is a prospective, nonrandomized, 3-armed, multicenter study conducted to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Talent Thoracic System when used in low-to-moderate risk patients with thoracic aortic disease (test arm n=195). The primary effectiveness endpoint is successful aneurysm treatment at 12 months. The primary safety endpoint is all-cause mortality at 12 months. Data in this chart is 12 month data unless otherwise noted. b. Successful aneurysm treatment is defined as no aneurysm growth >5 mm at 12-month follow-up when compared to 1-month follow-up visit and absence of a Type I endoleak for which a secondary procedure was performed before, at, or as a result of the 12-month follow-up visit. Of the 14 subjects with a primary effectiveness failure at 12 months, 10 patients had aneurysm growth > 5 mm, 3 patients had a Type I endoleak requiring reintervention, and 1 patient had both aneurysm growth > 5 mm and a Type I endoleak requiring reintervention. c. Successful deployment and delivery of the stent graft at implantation equaled 99.5%. This secondary endpoint is a 30-day endpoint. d. This study was conducted to evaluate various performance characteristics and product attributes of thoracic endovascular stent graft systems used to treat thoracic aortic lesions. Testing was conducted on 34 mm commercially available devices in an air chamber that maintained ambient temperatures at 37 ±2 C. References: 1.
