Computed tomography versus aortography for preoperative evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysm


, : Computed tomography versus aortography for preoperative evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysm. Acta Radiologica: Diagnosis 25(2): 95-100

Twenty-eight patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm were examined by computed tomography (CT) and aortography. They subsequently underwent aneurysmectomy and reconstruction of the aorta. CT provided in most of the cases the same or more accurate preoperative information than aortography. CT is comfortable for the patient, less invasive and faster than aortography and can be done as an outpatient procedure. Thus, we recommend CT to be the primary method for preoperative evaluation of abdominal aortic aneurysm. In selected cases aortography gives additional information regarding the relationship to the renal arteries (when the aorta is very tortuous), the occurrence of renal artery stenosis, and peripheral vascular disease.

Background: In Nepal, more than 90% of the deliveries take place at home where birth weight is often not recorded. In developing countries, low birth weight (LBW, <2500 grams) accounts for 60-80% of neonatal deaths. Early identification and ref...
