Evaluation of Aortic Aneurysms With Focus on Wall Stress and Wall Rupture Risk


Brief description of study

Retrospective study to evaluate the impact of computational wall stress analysis based on computed tomography (CT) of ruptured and not-ruptured aortic aneurysms as an additional predictor for rupture with dedicated software.

Detailed Study Description

In patients with known aortic aneurysm who received clinically indicated CT during a time period from 01/2004-12/2013 the CT data was evaluated with dedicated software, A4clinics, VASCOPS GmbH, Graz, Austria. The following parameters will be evaluated: exterior and luminal diameter, intraluminal thrombus (ILT) thickness, vessel-, luminal- and intraluminal thrombus volume, peak wall stress (PWS), peak wall rupture risk (PWRR), von Mises-stress and rupture risk-index in the ILT.
