Abstract : Background and purpose - The WEB is an innovative flow disruption device for cerebral aneurysm embolization with rapidly expanding indications. Our purpose was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of computed tomography angiography (CTA) at 1-year follow-up of aneurysms treated with the WEB. Materials and methods - Between April 2014 and May 2016, the study prospectively included patients treated with the WEB at our institution, and followed up within 24hours by CTA and at 1year by CTA, time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (TOF MRA) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The diagnostic quality of imaging data was assessed based on the confidence index, artifacts, and WEB shape depiction. The imaging diagnostic performance was assessed using 3 criteria at 1year: aneurysm occlusion status and worsening, and WEB shape compression. Interobserver and intermodality agreement was determined by calculating κ values. Results - The study ultimately included 16 patients (9 women, mean age 53±7.6years). CTA quality confidence was scored as 2/2, artifacts 0.4/2 and WEB shape depiction 1.9/2, superior to TOF MRA for the latter two criteria. Aneurysm occlusion was adequate in 93.7% of patients, with CTA showing excellent interobserver reproducibility and agreement with DSA on a 4-grade scale (κ=1.00), while TOF MRA yielded good reproducibility (κ=0.76) and agreement with DSA (κ=0.69). CTA also identified aneurysm occlusion worsening (43.7%) and WEB compression (81.2%) in excellent agreement with DSA (κ=0.85 and 1.00). Conclusions - CTA is a reproducible and reliable technique for the follow-up of aneurysms treated with the WEB device.
