JAGUAR Study Evaluates ALTO® Compared to Other Commercially Available EVAR Devices
IRVINE, Calif. May 23, 2023—Endologix LLC, a privately held, global medical device company, dedicated to providing disruptive therapies for the interventional treatment of vascular disease, today announced the completion of the 150th case in the JAGUAR Study. This randomized controlled trial is evaluating Endologix’s ALTO Abdominal Stent Graft System, comparing its effectiveness to other commercially available endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) devices in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA).
The JAGUAR (ObJective Analysis to GaUge EVAR Outcomes Through Randomization) Study is a prospective, randomized, multi-center study, designed to enroll 450 patients at up to 60 sites. Three hundred patients will be randomly assigned to the ALTO cohort, with 150 allocated to the comparator group. The study will follow-up patients through five years, with outcomes independently adjudicated.
“This milestone for Endologix underlines our dedication to clinical research and patient care,” stated Matt Thompson, President, and CEO of Endologix. “The JAGUAR trial, our second randomized study aimed at assessing comparative endograft performance, follows in the footsteps of our successful LEOPARD study. We strongly believe in ALTO’s role in managing AAA, given its low-profile, wide applicability within EVAR and in the durability of the adaptive sealing technology. These evaluations are instrumental in shaping optimal treatment strategies and enhancing patient outcomes.”
