Preoperative Intrasac Thrombus Load Predicts Worse Outcome after Elective Endovascular Repair of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms

Abstract Purpose To evaluate the impact of two-dimensional and three-dimensional preoperative morphologic features analyzed on computed tomography (CT) angiography on midterm outcome in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) treated with endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). Materials and Methods A retrospective analysis was conducted using a prospectively collected database. Morphologic features considered as potentially influencing outcomes… Read More »
