Abstract:   (2376 Views)
Aortic transection is a rare but life-threatening complication of blunt chest trauma. Treatment options include open repair, medical management and most recently, endovascular repair.
We report a 33 years old male with a traumatic aortic transection following a car accident. Aortic injury and its pseudo-aneurysm were confirmed by Chest CT scan and TEE in the descending thoracic aorta just below the isthmus. We did not have endovascular repair possibility at our center. The patient was transferred to the operating room for emergent surgery. Aortic transection was repaired by partial left heart bypass and Dacron interposition grafting. Postoperatively, no vascular-related complication was seen. There was temporary recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy that resolved spontaneously. The patient has no problem at 6-year follow-up.
