Watanabe and associates studied the association between false lumen remodeling late after type A dissection repair and the shape of the true lumen in the early postoperative period. They found that the true lumen shape in the early postoperative period predicts false lumen remodeling late after surgery. The methodology of computed tomography angiography measurements used in this work serves as a good example of quantitative image analysis for patients with aortic disease.
