Abstract: ABSTRACTObjective To study the application of multi-slice spiral CT angiography MSCTA after endoluminal exclusion of aortic diseases. Methods 16-slice CT angiography was performed in 15 patients with aortic dissection and 4 patients with aortic aneurysm after endovascular exclusion. Two observers analysized the images and interpreted the outcomes and complications after endovascular exclusions of aortic dissection and aortic aneurysm. Results In 19 patients,thrombus was found in all the false lumens of aortic dissection and the outer-stent cavity of aortic aneurysm. However,one patient with aortic aneurysm graft thombozed; 4 patients had endoleak (3 with type endoleak,1 with type endoleak complicating graft deformation); one achieved perfusion recovery,and one experienced thrombolysis of superior mesenteric artery. Conclusion MSCTA can be an objective tool for the post-operative evaluation of endovascular exclusion of aortic diseases.
