Table 2 Tukey comparisons of the mechanical properties of the regions of interest at sacrifice at three or six months

From: Shear wave elasticity imaging for residual endoleak and thrombus characterisation after endoleak embolisation following endovascular aneurysm repair: a canine animal study

Comparison of elasticity values kPa (mean ± standard deviation) p value
Endoleak vs fresh thrombus 0.2 ± 0.1 vs 9.5 ± 3.3 <  0.001
Endoleak vs organised thrombus 0.2 ± 0.1 vs 48.1 ± 21.3 <  0.001
Endoleak vs agents 0.2 ± 0.1 vs 44.9 ± 23.7 <  0.001
Fresh thrombus vs organised thrombus 9.5 ± 3.3 vs 48.1 ± 21.3 <  0.001
Fresh thrombus vs agents 9.5 ± 3.3 vs 44.9 ± 23.7 < 0.001
Organised thrombus vs agents 48.1 ± 21.3 vs 44.9 ± 23.7 1.000
  1. Note: all elasticity values were compared on animal sacrificed at three months (n = 5) or six months (n = 3). Values were log-transformed to better meet normality assumptions. Comparisons were significant overall in the ANOVA results (p < 0.001), there was no influence of the time at sacrifice (three or six months) on elasticity values (p = 0.275) and type of gel (Chi or Chi-STS; p = 0.713)
