Abstract

The purpose of this case report is to determine the unique pathogenesis ofa "spared flow tract" through a thick mural thrombus of an aortic aneurysmmimicking the penetrating or dissecting tract of an impending or acute rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and to discuss its clinical importance. Three blood flow tracts (i.e., spared flow tracts) penetrating to aortic major branches (inferior mesenteric arteries in two and left renal artery in one) through thick mural thrombi of three aortic aneurysms were found on thin section spiral CT scans. Histopathological examination revealed that the tracts were formed by thrombi and partially covered with endothelial cells. In conclusion, spared flow tracts may be pathways continuing to the aortic major branches through thick mural thrombi of aortic aneurysms and are spared from thrombogenesis because of relatively high blood flows. Their pathogenesis is definitely different from penetrating or dissecting tracts within mural thrombi of ruptured AAAs. Spared flow tracts should not bemisinterpreted as penetrating or dissecting tracts of impending or acute rupture.
