abstract

  • Stent-graft treatment reduces intra-aneurysmal pressure to <30% of systemic pressure when no endoleak is present; however, significantly greater pressure is present in aneurysms treated with porous ePTFE stent-grafts than Dacron grafts. Histologic and MRI imaging analysis suggest that active transudation of serous blood components may be contributing to this increased intra-aneurysmal pressure.
