Follow-up of Endovascular Aneurysm Treatment - The FEAT Trial
Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting
After endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, life-long follow-up is needed to monitor the effectiveness of exclusion of the aneurysm sac from blood flow. For this reason, aneurysm diameter and the presence of endoleaks is evaluated with CT angiography yearly after Endovascular Aneurysm Repair (EVAR).
The aim of this study is to investigate the value of MRA examinations for the follow-up of these patients. The advantages of MRA with respect to CTA are no use of ionizing radiation, use of less nephrotoxic contrast agents.
