Abstract

The evaluation of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms for endograft candidacy and their follow-up after treatment are heavily dependent on radiologic imaging. Factors never considered during conventional open repair have become crucial to patient selection and procedural success, and the new and developing nature of the field of endovascular repair necessitates close surveillance of these devices after deployment. Computed tomography (CT) has emerged as the single most effective imaging tool for the preprocedural assessment and subsequent follow-up of these patients. This article outlines the technical parameters for obtaining pre- and postoperative CT examinations in endograft patients and discusses the important imaging findings.
