Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair (TEVAR) is often associated with graft related complications such as endoleaks, kinking, infolding, and stentgraft migration, disconformability and especially disattachment phenomena. It is the objective of this study to investigate the potential of MRI for assessing the impact of the stents on blood flow and vessel compliance.
