Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The objective of our study was to review expected findings and complications after thoracic endovascular aortic repair on CT angiography (CTA). CONCLUSION. Luminal and extraluminal changes to the thoracic aorta occur after endovascular stent-grafting. The radiologist can facilitate appropriate management by detecting and differentiating expected CTA findings from complications.
