BACKGROUND: Endoleak and sac growth remain unpredictable occurrences after EVAR, necessitating regular surveillance imaging, including CT angiography. This study was designed to identify preoperative CT variables that predict AAA remodeling and sac behavior post-EVAR. METHODS: Pre- and postoperative CT scans from 136 abdominal aortic aneurysms treated with EVAR were analyzed using M2S (West Lebanon, NH) software for size measurements. Preoperative total sac volume and proportion of thrombus and calcium in the sac were assessed...

Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a rare genetic and hereditary disorder that affects and weakens the structure and sustentability of medium and large size arteries, causing severe clinical complications, often fatal, such as is the case of spontaneous ruptures, aneurysms or arterial dissections. Concomitantly, spontaneous intestinal perforations may occur, as well as uterine ruptures, following a pregnancy and during the peripartum period. The authors report the clinical cases of three young females of the same family, with the diagnosis of vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, coursing with severe involvement of the aorta (ascending aortic anerysm, dissection of the thoracoabdominal aorta), who underwent successful surgical management and were evaluated from 6 to 18 years after the operations...

The dangers of any abdominal aortic aneurysm are discussed, and the disastrous combination of an aneurysm and abdominal pain emphasised. These anerysms can be divided into 4 groups. The presentation and operative mortality for each group is discussed, as is the long term survival, state of the peripheral circulation and general health after operation. How results can be improved is considered. It is concluded that all such aneyrysms should be operated upon because of the good immediate and long term results in comparison with those not operated upon...
