Purpose: To describe the findings on computed tomography (CT) of the aortic sac (AS) in patients operated on for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) with insertion of a coated Dacron prosthesis. Material and Methods: A prospective study of 36 consecutive patients operated on for AAA over 2 years and followed longitudinally with CT for up to 10 years. Results: All patients had a fluid-filled AS on CT 7–10 days postoperatively. At 6 months, the AS had decreased in most patients, mainly in the antero… Expand
Durability of open repair of juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
Open JAAA repair yields excellent long-term anatomic durability and preserves renal function, and provides a benchmark against which fenestrated/branched endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) outcomes can be compared. Expand
Recurrence of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, Rare Complication of Disease
TLDR
Although recurrence of AAA is rare, it has more diagnostic and therapeutic challenge and treatment after open surgery is better to conducted with endovascular manner, because of general condition of patient and probable difficult abdomen due to adhesion of previous laparotomy. Expand
Imaging and management of complications of open surgical repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
A variety of potential complications that may occur following open surgical repair are illustrated to illustrate their management using both surgical and endovascular techniques. Expand
Long-term cardiovascular outcome after elective abdominal aortic aneurysm open repair.
TLDR
Although long-term survival is similar to that in the general population, successful AAA-OR patients remain at increased risk of cardiovascular events throughout their lifetime, confirming the durability of the procedure. Expand
Management of abdominal aortic prosthetic graft and endograft infections. A multidisciplinary update.
TLDR
A review of AGIs is performed, in order to raise awareness on clinical presentation, current available diagnostic tools, prophylaxis, surgical and anti-infective treatment of AGI. Expand
Multidetector CT findings of complications of surgical and endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms.
TLDR
Normal and abnormal postoperative and post-TEVAR/EVAR MDCT findings are described and a broad spectrum of normal expected findings must be differentiated from early or late complications in which intervention is required. Expand
Acute non-traumatic disease of the abdominal aorta
TLDR
The goal of treating acute aortic pathology is to repair and prevent rupture, as well as restore and maintain perfusion of the lower extremities, kidneys, and mesentery, but both open and endovascular repair of the abdominal aorta may become acutely complicated, resulting in compromise of these goals.

Imaging Modalities for the Diagnosis of Vascular Graft Infections: A Consensus Paper amongst Different Specialists
TLDR
Different radiological and Nuclear Medicine modalities commonly adopted for the imaging of VGI are summarized to provide evidence-based answers to several practical questions raised by clinicians and surgeons when they approach imaging in order to plan the most appropriate radiological or NM examination for their patients.

Suivi cardio-vasculaire à long terme après réparation ouverte élective d’anévrysme de l’aorte abdominale
TLDR
Bien que la survie a long terme soit semblable a celle de the population globale, les patients ayant survecu a une AAA-OR restent a plus grand risque d’evenements cardio-vasculaires durant toute leur vie. Expand
Évaluation de la morbi-mortalité des infections prothétiques vasculaires aortiques : impact de la prise en charge pluridisciplinaire
TLDR
L’avenir de the chirurgie des IPVA sera fortement influence par l’essor des endoprothese aortiques et seul une prise en charge pluridisciplinaire permettra de relever ce defi chirurgical. Expand

[Computer tomography after reconstructive vascular surgery of the abdominal aorta. Can fluid around the aortic prosthesis be considered a normal finding?].
TLDR
Perigraft fluid may be a "normal" phenomenon during the early postoperative period in patients operated on for abdominal aortic aneurysm or aortoiliac occlusive disease. Expand
Natural history of periprosthetic air on computerized axial tomographic examination of the abdomen following abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
The presence of periprosthetic gas on computerized axial tomography (CT) of the abdomen following abdominal aortic reconstruction has been proposed to be a reliable indicator of prosthetic graftExpand
The value of late computed tomographic scanning in identification of vascular abnormalities after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
TLDR
Late follow-up CT scans after abdominal aortic aneurysm repair often show vascular abnormalities that are not clinically significant, but, in 15.4% of patients who underwent tube graft placement, one of the iliac arteries was significantly abnormal to warrant consideration for surgical repair. Expand
Management of primary aortic graft infection by extra-anatomic bypass reconstruction.
TLDR
Extra-anatomic reconstruction in patients with aortic graft infection can be performed with low perioperative mortality andLimb salvage rates following extra-an atomic reconstruction are determined not only by the mode of reconstruction, but also by the primary disease. Expand
Aneurysm sac enlargement after conventional inflammatory aneurysm repair with a polytetrafluoroethylene aortobiiliac graft.
TLDR
Seroma without proven infection has been described Routine Duplex 3 months postoperatively showed in several reports, especially in grafts for haemoan aneurysmal sac with a diameter of 4 cm and a patent dialysis and grafts in extra-anatomic positions. Expand
Prosthetic graft infection: diagnostic and therapeutic role of interventional radiology.
TLDR
The percutaneous approach to prosthetic graft infection permits both the drainage and aspiration of the fluid in the perigraft area for laboratory studies and can offer the possibility of definitive cure in patients for whom surgical management is considered too risky or, at least, represents a temporizing maneuver to improve the patient's general condition before surgery. Expand
Conservative treatment of aortic graft infection.
TLDR
Whether conservative treatment for infected aortic prosthetic grafts should be reserved for patients at high operative risk or might be a useful initial therapeutic approach for all patients is evaluated. Expand
Detection of abdominal aortic graft infection: comparison of CT and in-labeled white blood cell scans.
TLDR
CT is more sensitive than In-WBC in evaluating the extent of aortic graft infection and should be the imaging method of choice, according to a prospective study. Expand
Computerized tomography following abdominal aortic surgery.
TLDR
It is believed CT is the diagnostic screening procedure of choice for most patients with suspected aortic graft complications and provides an excellent display of the prosthetic graft material. Expand
In situ replacement of arterial prosthesis infected by bacterial biofilms: long-term follow-up.
TLDR
In situ graft replacement is effective treatment for biofilm infections of vascular prostheses because of the indolent nature of these infections, subsequent infection of previously uninvolved graft segments may be expected. Expand
