Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 21 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Infrarenal AAA with a maximum diameter ≥ 4.5 cm. - Infrarenal AAA with at least 12 mm length of non-aneurysmal proximal neck. - Infrarenal AAA with a proximal neck internal diameter between 19-29 mm. - Infrarenal AAA with an internal diameter at the aortic bifurcation ≥ 18 mm. - Infrarenal AAA with an angle of ≤ 60° relative to the long axis of the aneurysm. - Bilateral iliac artery distal fixation sites ≥ 10 mm in length. - Bilateral iliac arteries with an internal diameter between 9 and 20 mm. - Bilateral femoral/iliac arteries with morphology compatible with standard vascular access techniques and vessel size must accommodate a 16F (5.3 mm) or 18F (6.0 mm) delivery system. Exclusion Criteria: - Myocardial infarction within past 10 weeks. - Active systemic infection. - Ruptured or leaking AAA. - Mycotic or inflammatory AAA. - Genetic connective tissue disorders (e.g., Marfans or Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes). - Concomitant TAA or thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms. - Requires emergent AAA surgery. - Previous AAA repair. - Patients with a body habitus that would prevent imaging required by the study. - Patient has significant comorbid conditions that pose undue risk of general anesthesia or endovascular surgery. - Patient requires additional planned major procedure at the time of AAA repair or within 30 days before or after AAA repair. - Dialysis dependent renal failure or creatinine > 2.5 mg/dL. - Allergy to or intolerance of radiopaque contrast agents. - Patients with a known sensitivity or allergy to implant materials. - Patients who cannot discontinue oral anticoagulation or antiplatelet therapy at the time of the study procedure. - Patients with history of bleeding diathesis or hypercoagulable condition. - Patients with thrombus, calcification, and/or plaque ≥ 2mm in thickness and/or ≥ 50% (180°) continuous coverage of the vessel circumference in the intended seal zone. - Patients with irregular shaped calcification and/or plaque that may compromise the fixation and sealing at the proximal or distal implantation sites.
