Endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms is currently widely diffuse. Imaging plays a major role in the preprocedural patient evaluation, implantation of stent-graft, and patient follow-up. The aim of this paper is to describe the more frequent findings that can be seen in CT examinations after endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. We discuss CT findings related to the aneurysm (size, exclusion with complete perigraft thrombosis, back-filling of aneurysm sac via branch vessels) and to the device (dislocation, rotation, kinking, device expansion, patency/thrombosis, device disruption). We also show some examples of incorrect assenbly of the modular components of the stent-graft.

Abstract

Endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms is currently widely diffuse. Imaging plays a major role in the preprocedural patient evaluation, implantation of stent-graft, and patient follow-up. The aim of this paper is to describe the more frequent findings that can be seen in CT examinations after endovascular repair of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. We discuss CT findings related to the aneurysm (size, exclusion with complete perigraft thrombosis, back-filling of aneurysm sac via branch vessels) and to the device (dislocation, rotation, kinking, device expansion, patency/thrombosis, device disruption). We also show some examples of incorrect assenbly of the modular components of the stent-graft.
