    Samenvatting

    In this thesis several aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of infectious native aortic aneurysm (INAA) and vascular graft and endograft infection (VGEI) are investigated. Part I is mainly about diagnostics. Part II describes various biological materials used in vascular surgery. Part I contains a study focusing on INAA and another study focusing on the reporting of [18F]FDG PET/CT scans for the diagnosis of VGEI. In addition, a case is described, in which the importance of a systematic approach in the diagnosis of VGEI is emphasized. The second part of this thesis contains a study on the use of Omniflow II in different anatomical locations in both an infectious and non-infectious setting. Furthermore, it contains two studies on the use of different patches (including the bovine pericardial patch) used for carotid endarterectomy.
