Patient
female, 76 year(s)

    Axial image demonstrating aortic stent and peri-graft low attenuation density

    Axial image demonstrating aortic stent in situ with surrounding thrombus and perigraft low attenuation. A focus of extra-luminal contrast can be seen which is the probable site of the fistula
