Aortic Bifurcation Morphology Alone is Not Able to Predict Outcome in Patients Submitted to Elective Endovascular Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair
INTRODUCTION Endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has become a widespread and accepted practice in most Vascular Surgery centres. The optimal method to identify and characterise complications still awaits assessment. CASE REPORT An 83-year-old woman was admitted to our Institution for volumetric expansion of the aneurysm sac due to a suspected type II endoleak. Post-analysis, using OsiriX, revealed the presence of a hole at the distal portion of the main body in the docking zone near the flow divider. CONCLUSION OsiriX is an image processing software and an attractive alternative to dedicated workstations and allows rendering and analysis of numerous medical imaging modalities.
