[Current applications of numeric angiography in the study of cervico-cerebral vessels, the aorta, pulmonary vessels and following vascular surgery].
Additional Document Info
Numeric angiography is an examination of choice for studying the thoraco-abdominal aorta, whatever the underlying pathological condition, and is often the only angiographic investigation useful and necessary for deciding on therapy in cases of aneurysm. In contrast, results are unsuccessful in approximately 15% of cases when neck vessels are studied. Significant lesions nearly always produce sufficient information for the decision as to therapy to be made. Vascular surgery follow up is an excellent indication for numeric angiography, whatever the surgical technique used or the anatomic site involved. Reliable data can be obtained from pulmonary vessels by the use of this method in patients with pulmonary embolism, arteriovenous malformations, and abnormal venous return.
