Computed Tomography in Prosthetic Aortic Graft Infections

Published:March 30, 2015DOI:
      Prosthetic aortic grafts infection is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Staphylococcus species are the most commonly implicated causative organisms. Computed tomography (CT) is the imaging modality of choice in the investigation of patients with suspected prosthetic aortic graft infection, particularly in the assessment of abscess and pseudo-aneurysms associated with aortic graft infections. We describe two cases in which CT provides incremental information about the complications associated with prosthetic aortic graft infection which is essential in guiding treatment and management.
