    Baseline US showing inhomogeneous perigraft thrombus

    Conventional US showing a hypoechoic area (arrows), surrounded by a slightly echoic rim, within the right anterior aspect of the aneurysmal sac.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Baseline US showing inhomogeneous perigraft thrombus;

    Contrast-enhanced harmonic US showing an endoleak
     

    Contrast-enhanced US scan at 0.30 minutes from injection demonstrating a clear opacification of the basally-shown inhomogeneous area (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast-enhanced harmonic US showing an endoleak;

    Contrast-enhanced US scan at 1.51 minutes from injection showing a partially persistent contrast leakage within the sac (arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast-enhanced harmonic US showing an endoleak;

    Baseline CT scan showing a normally located graft

    On unenhanced CT scan the endoaortic graft is normally located and the periprosthetic tissue is homogeneous.

    CT angiography showing a contrast leak
     

    On contrast-enhanced CT a contrast endoleak is seen developing from the posterior aspect of the left graft portion and passing dorsally to the right one (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT angiography showing a contrast leak;

    The leakage encompasses the right graft and spreads within the right anterior portion of the sac (arrow).
