W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. Announces GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis Receives Approval for Clinical Study in the US and Japan
Jun 16 15
W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) announced that the Food and Drug Administration has consented to the initiation of the clinical study for the new GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis and the Japanese clinical trial notification for the new device was accepted by Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency. Gore will conduct a clinical study in the US and Japan to assess the safety and effectiveness of the GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis in treating infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms with challenging patient anatomy. The new device is the next generation of the GORE EXCLUDER AAA Endoprosthesis and includes several key design features, including increased conformability and a delivery system with angulation control. The clinical trial consists of two sub-studies, each assessing the device for a different range of patient anatomies. The first sub-study will assess the device in proximal aortic neck angles of zero to 60 degrees and aortic neck lengths of 10 mm or greater. The other sub-study will evaluate proximal aortic neck angles of 61 to 90 degrees and aortic neck lengths of 10 mm or greater. Once approved, the GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis would be the only device indicated for aortic neck angles up to 90 degrees and aortic neck lengths as short as 10 mm. The GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis is deployed via an enhanced delivery system that includes angulation control, giving physicians the option to angle or bend the device to achieve orthogonal placement to the aortic blood flow lumen and to maximize the conformability of the device. Like the GORE C3 Delivery System, the GORE EXCLUDER Conformable AAA Endoprosthesis delivery system will offer the ability to reposition the device after initial deployment if needed to achieve optimal device placement.
W. L. Gore & Associates Launches GORE® Portable Electronic Vent GAW331
Jun 9 15
W. L. Gore & Associates announced the launch of the GORE® Portable Electronic Vent GAW331 – a new acoustic vent that raises the bar for immersion performance in wearables, action cameras, smartphones, and other portable electronic devices. GORE® Acoustic Vent GAW331 is engineered specifically to maintain a device’s sound quality even after immersion in 30 meters (3 bar) of water for 10 minutes – an unsurpassed level of performance. The new GORE® Acoustic Vent GAW331 from Gore maintains sound quality of devices even after immersion in 30 meters (3 bar) of water for 10 minutes. The GORE® Acoustic Vent GAW331 delivers reliable protection and immersion performance, as measured by the most rigorous industry standards. It complies with ISO 22810, the standard that defines water resistance for watches, meaning the GAW331 vents withstand immersion at 30 meters for 10 minutes without leaking. The new Gore GAW331 also complies with standards relevant to smartphone applications, such as IEC 60529 for Ingress Protection (IP). Under this standard, the GAW331 qualifies for both the IP67 rating (temporary immersion in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes) and IP68 rating (continuous immersion in 10 meters of water for 60 minutes and 30 meter submersion for 10 minutes). In addition, the new Acoustic Vent GAW331 has been engineered to deliver a typical airflow of 285 ml/min/cm2 (dp = 70 mbar). This provides the optimal balance of two critical – and competing – performance requirements: A highly-protected housing that meets ISO and IEC standards; A highly-breathable housing that reduces transducer bias and delivers high-quality acoustics; and an extremely thin ePTFE membrane is the key. The GAW331 uses a unique oleophobic ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) membrane to deliver high performance in very small electronic devices. With a typical part thickness of just 0.28 mm, this extremely thin black membrane with adhesive attachment is ideal for applications where housing space is limited.
