Manometers, Vascular Aneurysm
Definition : Manometers designed to measure the pressure inside a vascular aneurysm using a sensor/transducer that is implanted in the aneurysm sac created by a stent-graft implanted to repair the aneurysm; the sac is excluded from blood circulation during the procedure. These devices typically consist of an implantable pressure transducer (e.g., radiofrequency, ultrasound) and an external console that reads the pressure from the transducer signal and displays the results. Vascular aneurysm manometers are used during endovascular procedures intended to repair vascular aneurysms (typically abdominal aortic aneurysms); comparing aneurysm sac pressure values before and after the exclusion of the sac from circulation during aneurysm repair facilitates the detection of internal leaks (e.g., type I endoleaks).
