Presentations Highlight the Tack Endovascular System®
for Focal Dissection Repair Device Following Balloon Angioplasty
WAYNE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intact
Vascular, Inc., a developer of medical devices for minimally
invasive peripheral vascular procedures, today announced the schedule of
key presentations to be featured during a lunch symposium at the 2019
New Cardiovascular Horizons (NCVH) Conference, May 29th
through 31st at The Roosevelt New Orleans in New Orleans,
Recently FDA-approved for above-the-knee interventions, the Tack
Endovascular System is a first-of-its-kind dissection repair device
implanted post-angioplasty to resolve dissections in patients with
peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Balloon angioplasty, whether
performed with plain or drug-coated balloons, inherently injures the
vessel wall, creating dissections that may inhibit blood flow and
promote thrombosis formation. Despite the prevalence of dissections,
they are frequently underdiagnosed and left untreated, often leading to
further complications and compromised patient outcomes.
“Post-angioplasty dissections can have a significant clinical impact as
demonstrated by high rates of restenosis and re-intervention,” said
Bruce Shook, President and CEO of Intact Vascular. “We are pleased to
have such a robust program this year at the NCVH Conference, showcasing
the importance of treating dissections with the Tack Endovascular
System, a minimal metal solution that improves angioplasty outcomes and
preserves future treatment options for patients.”
The lunch symposium, “Precision Dissection Repair with the Tack
Endovascular System: Evidence and Early Experience”, will be held
from 12:00 to 12:55PM on Wednesday, May 29th in the Blue
Room, Lobby Level. The symposium will feature presentations by Dr.
George Adams, Dr. Ehrin Armstrong, Dr. Mohammad (Mac) Ansari and Dr.
Additionally, Dr. Ehrin Armstrong will present, “Tack Endovascular
Device: TOBA II Trial” on Thursday, May 30th at 2:44PM in
the Crescent City Ballroom, Mezzanine Level.

About Intact Vascular and the Tack Endovascular System
Intact Vascular is a privately held medical device company that develops
minimally- invasive peripheral vascular products. The Tack Endovascular
System is designed to repair dissections following peripheral balloon
angioplasty. Pre-loaded with six self-expanding nitinol implants for
above-the-knee (ATK) interventions, the Tack Endovascular System can be
deployed to treat multiple dissections using a single catheter and
leaving behind >70% less metal than stents.1 Additionally,
the Tack Endovascular System is designed to minimize vessel
inflammation, promote healing, improve outcomes and preserve future
treatment options for peripheral arterial disease patients. Visit www.intactvascular.com

Intact Vascular Clinical Program
Intact Vascular is sponsoring three clinical trials to evaluate its Tack
Endovascular System: TOBA II, TOBA II BTK and TOBA III. TOBA II is
investigating the combination of the Tack® implant with plain
angioplasty balloons and the BD Interventional Lutonix®
drug-coated balloon (DCB) in arteries above the knee and has completed
its primary endpoint analysis. TOBA II BTK has completed enrollment and
is investigating the combination of the Tack implant with plain balloon
angioplasty in the arteries below the knee. TOBA III has completed
enrollment in Europe and is investigating the combination of the Tack
implant with the Medtronic IN.PACT® Admiral®
(DCB), with a long lesion subset.
