Detection of endograft fractures with multidetector row computed tomography.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Delayed endograft metallic strut failures detected in vivo with multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) are reported in two patients who underwent endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with AneuRx and Talent endografts. In both instances, nitinol fractures were associated with proximal migration and type I endoleak. In both cases, the metallic strut fractures were detected with transverse sections from 16-channel MDCT angiograms and confirmed by using volume rendering. These cases highlight the previously unreported ability of thin-section, high-resolution MDCT angiography to detect endograft strut fractures.
