Usefulness of multislice computerized tomographic angiography in the postoperative evaluation of patients with clipped aneurysms.

Abstract : BACKGROUND: The aim of our study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of multislice computed tomographic angiography (MSCTA) regarding exclusion quality after aneurysm clipping. METHODS: Sixty patients (74 aneurysms) underwent microsurgical exclusion using titanium clips. The presence of aneurysm remnants on MSCTA was compared by a neuroradiologist to 2D digital subtraction angiography (DSA), which was considered as a reference examination. The contribution of 3D DSA was assessed in a subpopulation of 29 patients (35 aneurysms). RESULTS: With 2D DSA, six aneurysm remnants (8%) were diagnosed, and only five (7%) by MSCTA. The specificity and sensitivity were 98.5 and 83%, respectively. MSCTA failed to demonstrate one large remnant (>2 mm) because of clip artifacts (six clips). With 3D DSA six supplementary remnants were diagnosed. Two were large remnants blinded by vessel overlaps and clip artifacts. Four were small "dog-eared" remnants (
