Morphometrische Untersuchung nach stentgestützter Ausschaltung thorakaler Aortenaneurysmen

Purpose: To determine the sensitivity of diameter measurements to volume measurements and to evaluate the size changing after endovascular grafting. Methods: Thirty-two patients with thoracic aortic aneurysms with 3-dimensional reconstruction of CTs were studied. Diameter measurements were performed in transverse and orthogonal orientation (Dmax). Volume measurements were calculated by a computer reconstruction. Results/conclusion: TAA volume significantly decreased after successful endograft implantation at T5 (2 years postop). In studies of existing endoleaks there was no reduction of the aneurysm volume. The volume measurements showed earlier a significant reduction than the regular used diameter measurements.
