Abstract

Endovascular stent grafting of abdominal aortic aneurysms is a new technique that may replace open surgery in selected cases. Pre- and postoperative angiography can be replaced by helical CT. This pictorial essay describes and illustrates the use of multislice helical CT where maximum intensity projection and multiplanar reformats play a central role in the evaluation.
