Using three-dimensional rotational angiography for sizing of covered stents

AJR Am J Roentgenol. 2002 Jan;178(1):149-52. doi: 10.2214/ajr.178.1.1780149.


Objective: The purpose of our study was to determine the value of three-dimensional (3D) rotational angiography in the assessment of patients to be treated with covered stents for peripheral arterial aneurysms.

Conclusion: Our preliminary experience suggests that 3D rotational angiography appears to be a valid tool in the pre- and perprocedural assessment of patients treated endovascularly for arterial aneurysms.
