About Lombard Medical

Lombard Medical, Inc. is a medical technology company. The Company specializes in developing, manufacturing, and marketing endovascular stent-grafts that address medical needs in the repair of aortic aneurysms. The Company’s Aorfix is an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) stent-graft for the treatment of AAAs with angulation at the neck of the aneurysm of over 90 degrees. The Company supplies Aorfix pre-loaded into a delivery system, Aorflex, which is designed for accurate placement of Aorfix in the abdominal aorta. Once Aorfix is properly placed within the abdominal aorta, it provides a conduit for blood flow, thereby relieving pressure within the weakened or aneurysmal section of the vessel wall, which reduces the potential for the AAA to rupture. It also offers IntelliFlex, which is a delivery system technology created for Aorfix AAA stent graft, and Altura Endovascular Stent Graft System that offers a simple and predictable solution to the treatment of standard AAA anatomies.
