  • Figure 1
    Contrast enhanced CT scans of the abdomen
     

    includes a section beyond the level of the renal veins which shows a synchronous and intense enhancement of aorta (white arrow) and inferior vena cava (black arrow).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast enhanced CT scans of the abdomen;

    Section at a lower level, (through the iliac crest, 9 cm downward to A) shows aneurysmal dilatation of the aorta (white arrow) and communication between the aortic lumen and the laminated inferior vena cava (black...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast enhanced CT scans of the abdomen;

    Section at a more caudal level (through the iliac wings, 5 cm downward to A) shows dilatation and pronounced enhancement at the lumen of the inferior vena cava (black arrow) and pelvic veins.

includes a section beyond the level of the renal veins which shows a synchronous and intense enhancement of aorta (white arrow) and inferior vena cava (black arrow).
 
Section at a lower level, (through the iliac crest, 9 cm downward to A) shows aneurysmal dilatation of the aorta (white arrow) and communication between the aortic lumen and the laminated inferior vena cava (black arrow).
 
Section at a more caudal level (through the iliac wings, 5 cm downward to A) shows dilatation and pronounced enhancement at the lumen of the inferior vena cava (black arrow) and pelvic veins.
 
reconstruction in a coronal plane through aorta and inferior vena cava (fig. 2) demonstrates the aortic aneurysm (white arrow) and aortocaval fistula (black arrow). The site of communication between the lumina is indicated by the cross.
