AAA w/ intraluminal thrombus on abdominal POCUS



Which of the following describes this clip most accurately?

Resolution: AAA w/ intraluminal thrombus (extending into iliac bifurcation). 80% AAAs have intraluminal thrombus, confusing learners to mistake the inner aspect of thrombus for a dissection flap. Dissecting aneurysms are more likely to occur in the thoracic aorta (not abdominal).
