Gulfcoast: Ultrasound Evaluation of Aortic Endografts

 

Overview

Ultrasound Evaluation of Aortic Endografts Training Video is designed to review endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR), the role of duplex color detection, post-op surveillance protocols, and diagnostic criteria. The presentation will address methods, advantages, and limitations of color Doppler ultrasound for the evaluation of patients with endovascular aortic grafts.

Topics

  • Importance of Ultrasound in Evaluating EVAR
  • EVAR vs. Open AAA Repair
  • Advantages and Disadvantages
  • Role of Duplex /Color Flow Imaging in EVAR
  • EVAR and Endoleaks
  • Duplex Scan Protocols for Evaluation of Endoleaks
  • Post-Operative Surveillance
  • Case Examples

Objectives

  • Increase knowledge and competence to perform and/or interpret ultrasound evaluation of aortic endografts.
  • Outline scan techniques for optimal ultrasound evaluation of the abdominal aorta, aortic aneurysms, and endovascular grafts.
  • Define the term “endoleak” and list the different types.
  • Identify key sonographic findings associated with the normal and abnormal endovascular aortic graft.

Audience

Sonographers, physicians, nurse practitioners, PAs, or other medical professionals performing and/or interpreting aortic endograft sonography. Physician participants may include (but are not limited to): radiology, vascular surgery, general surgery, and cardiology.
