Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this article is to demonstrate how new imaging sequences and techniques allow characterization of postoperative complications after endovascular surgery and offer the physician more information for planning treatment than ever before. CONCLUSION: MR angiography is an excellent technique for the surveillance of patients after endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms because it is highly sensitive for the detection of postoperative complications. A thorough knowledge of the physical properties of the endovascular components is essential to choose the appropriate patients for this form of surveillance.
