Reminder - OR-Live.com Presents: Repair of a Migrated AAA Endovascular Graft With the Zenith® Renu™

Vascular Surgeons Will Show and Discuss the Procedure in a Round Table Setting on Friday September 30th at 4:00 P.M. ET, 21:00 UTC

BLOOMINGTON, IN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 30, 2005 -- Zenith® Renu™ AAA Ancillary Graft from Cook Inc., the first medical device specifically designed for secondary endovascular intervention in patients having received prior endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms, will be the focus of a round table discussion on Friday, September 30th, 2005 on www.OR-Live.com

Dr. Luis A. Sanchez, Vascular Surgeon at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Dr. Juan C. Parodi, Professor of Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Dr. Samuel R. Money, Program Director and Professor of Vascular Surgery at Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, LA, will be your hosts for the one-hour webcast.

Like all the Zenith AAA Endovascular Graft main body components, the Renu AAA Ancillary Graft utilizes an uncovered suprarenal stent with anchoring barbs to provide strong proximal fixation and enhanced graft-to-vessel sealing. Its lightweight, strong, shrink-resistant woven synthetic polyester graft material is the same that has been used in all Zenith endografts from Cook.

The new Renu graft system uses Cook's proven Flexor® Introducer System that features a kink-resistant, hydrophilic delivery sheath. A trigger-wire system facilitates accurate placement, controlled release and stabilization of the ancillary endograft during deployment, while the system's Captor® Hemostatic Valve inhibits blood reflux.
