Inflammatory aneurism endovascular

Bruno Kusznir Vitturi, Amanda Frias, Raphael Sementilli, Marcelo de Castro Jorge Racy, Roberto Augusto Caffaro, Geanete Pozzan
Firstly described in the 19th century by Sir William Osler, the mycotic aneurysm (MA) is a rare entity characterized by an abnormal arterial dilation, which is potentially fatal, and is associated with the infection of the vascular wall. Elderly patients are mostly involved, especially when risk factors like chronic diseases, immunosuppression, neoplasia, and arterial manipulation are associated. The authors report the case of a young male patient diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm of infectious origin in the presence of repeated negative blood cultures...

We report a case of epithelioid angiosarcoma of the abdominal aortic wall after endovascular treatment for abdominal aortic aneurysm (EVAR). A 60-year-old male, treated 7 years before with EVAR, presented with abdominal back pain, general fatigue, and fever. It was assumed to be a graft infection with periaortic tissue compatible with an inflammatory reaction. The endograft was therefore completely removed and a Dacron silver aorto-bisiliac graft was implanted. After a few days the patient worsened, the angio-computed tomography scan showed a progressive increase of the periaortic mass and numerous small nodules in the abdomen were also detected...

The purpose was to illustrate that single or multirow spiral CT angiography has become the main modality for the examination of the abdominal aorta. Our multidisciplinary group investigates weekly 15 abdominal aortas, with a single slice spiral CT since 1995, and a 4 row detector spiral CT since 1999. CT scans protocols and parameters optimization for the 2 CT systems are described. Indications and results of CT to investigate the various abdominal aortic diseases are illustrated and discussed: aneurisms (pretherapeutic staging, selection of indications of endovascular stent-grafting); obstructive aorto-arteriopathies (pretherapeutic staging, follow up after endovascular revascularization); dissection (diagnosis, pretherapeutic staging, follow up); inflammatory diseases; normal patterns and principal complications after surgery...
