BREDA, João Roberto et al. Endovascular treatment of traumatic descending thoracic aortic rupture. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.2, pp.171-174. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000200013.

A 55-year-old, female patient who was run over by a motor vehicle was admitted at an emergency room. Clinical, radiological and tomographic diagnosis of traumatic descending aortic thoracic rupture was performed. The patient was referred for endovascular treatment with placement of a self-expandable stent through the femoral artery. Treatment was successful, with exclusion of the lesion previously located in the aortic isthmus. Endovascular treatment has been indicated in the treatment of descending thoracic aortic diseases, with good initial results. In case of traumatic aortic rupture, endovascular treatment is a feasible alternative, especially due to risks offered by the conventional surgical treatment.
