The new device has received the CE Mark

The system is composed of the stent metal Zenith Dissection that provides support in the section of the aorta in which the smooth muscle and the elastic fabric are degenerate with large openings which allow access to the branches visceral (renal, mesenteric, etc. ) in If you ever need a second surgery. The system also includes the graft (graft) Zenith TX2 TAA Endovascular Graft with Pro-Form to seal the primary point of laceration loaded in the Z-Trak Plus Introduction System ™ that provides controlled release of the device at the point of interest.

Aortic dissection occurs when the smooth muscle and elastic tissue degenerates, causing the laceration of the aorta. The tear allows blood, pushed by the blood pressure, to create a "false" lumen in wall thickness destroying the tunica media and detaching the other two layers arterial (underwear and adventitia). This leads to an increase dellla pressure exerted on the outer wall, thus increasing significantly the probability of rupture of the aorta itself. The pressure exerted by the false lumen may also compromise the flow in the true lumen thus compromising the blood supply to each artery that arises from the aorta, Up to now the most serious dissections were treated with open chest surgical procedure, a procedure traumatic characterized by long periods of post-operative recovery, or through the use of aortic stent grafts to close the tear and redirect the blood flow.

The Zenith Dissection System was specially developed for the treatment of specific and complete aortic dissection type B. Using a "seal and stent" induces stasis and thrombosis of the false lumen and reperfusion of visceral branches. It also covers the main entry point, discouraging the progression of the aneurysm, and contributes to the remodeling of the aorta segments providing support to degenerate.

"The Zenith Dissection Endovascular System is an integral part of our portfolio of devices for the treatment of diseases of the aorta, " said Phil Nowell, global leader of Cook Medical's Aortic Intervention division. "With the development of a device specifically designed for the treatment of aortic dissection we set ourselves the goal of improving the life expectancy of patients with this disease."

  • Avatar Mimi Finding a marketing manager job in Australia?
    Jun 12, 2009 by Mimi | Posted in Immigration

    I m a US citizen and considering to move to Australia. From what I understand, the options to get a work visa is 1) to apply for a skilled work visa if there is a shortage in my area or 2) find a company willing to sponsor me. I checked on SEEK.com and I see a few jobs that match my skills but I am wondering if an Australian company would really be interested in sponsoring an American to work for them. Also out of the 2 options, which one is the fastest route?

    • If Marketing Manager is on the skills shortage list, then apply on your own. If not, a company would also not be able to sponsor you unless they could show there are not enough qualified Australians to fill the job. It all depends on how many years experience you have and if you have special skills. So if you were one of only 10 people who have experience marketing a specific medical device, you might be able to get a sponsorship. But if it s general consumer product marketing, its going to be almost impossible for a company to sponsor you Your best bet would be to get transferred over by your …

    • Only Canada comes close in regards to the percentage of middle class citizens to overall population. Your other examples have a small percentage of middle class. Their economic design creates a high volume of poor and a high percentage of wealthy. It could be argued that policies such as Universal Health Care create this situation. Obamacare specifically taxes the middle class and wealthy along with a heavy financial burden on medical device companies, drug companies and care providers. All of this is done to fund giving free healthcare to those who do not work and many that choose not to work …
