BASTOS, Roberto de Moraes et al. Stent thrombosis in aortic aneurysm: evaluation by multidetector CT. Rev. Assoc. Med. Bras. [online]. 2011, vol.57, n.1, pp.31-34. ISSN 0104-4230. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-42302011000100012.
OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the imaging findings of thrombosis in a series of patients submitted to endovascular repair of aortic abdominal aneurysm. METHODS: MDCT images of 30 patients submitted to endovascular repair of aortic abdominal aneurysm were obtained by a 64 slice scanner, 5 to 29 months after the endovascular treatment. RESULTS: Thrombosis was diagnosed in 10 patients (33.3%), and in three patients thrombosis was total in an iliac branch. CONCLUSION: MDCT allowed diagnosis of different types of endoluminal thrombosis in patients submitted to endovascular repair of aortic abdominal aneurysm. Utilization of this minimally invasive diagnostic technique should be encouraged in clinical practice.
