Follow-up and surveillance

Surveillance imaging
As per SVS 2020 guidelines:
Consider obtaining interval surveillance (every 12- 24 months) with axial imaging (CTA or MRA) in patients with segmental medial arteriolysis in light of reported cases of rapid arterial transformation.
Consider obtaining post-embolization surveillance every 1-2 years with axial imaging to assess for vascular remodeling and evidence of aneurysm reperfusion.
