Single arterial phase is sufficient. In doubtful versus suspected endoleaks, arterial and 90–120 s late phase scan may be useful to identify endoleaks. Complications 1. Leakage of contrast into the aneurysm sac or near the proximal or distal segment of the graft. 2. Extravasation of contrast into abdomen or chest due to graft or aortic rupture. 3. Enlarging aneurysmal sac with apparent high-density thrombus (Endotension-type V). 4. Perigraft collection or hematoma. Air-fluid level and air pockets suggest infection.

Axial CTA shows a large outpouching (arrow) near the bifurcation of the abdominal aorta into the iliac arteries. Note the small crescent-shaped area of hyperdensity (arrowhead) within the large thrombus anteriorly. (b) Ruptured AAA. Axial CTA shows a large infrarenal AAA with extravasation of contrast (arrow) and a large left retroperitoneal hematoma (arrowheads). (c) Septic aortic pseudoaneurysm. Axial CTA image shows a saccular outpouching (arrow) from the descending thoracic aorta, increased peri-aortic thickening (arrowhead), left paravertebral soft tissue enhancement, right pleural effusion and chronic osteomyelitis of vertebral body (note increased bone sclerosis – thin arrow).
Extent of dissection: Can extend from aortic root to any point along the aorta to the bifurcation of vessels. Branch vessel involvement (Great vessels, mesenteric, renal and iliac arteries): Extension of dissection flap into the branch vessels narrows the diameter of the true lumen. Identification of luminal origin of the branch vessels from the true or false lumen is important for planning management. Fluid in the pericardial recess and pericardial space: Fluid could be due to leakage of blood through the dissection, however, presence of significant blood suggests rupture of dissection and urgent surgical advice is needed.
