BRITO, Luis Carlos Mendes de et al. Endovascular treatment of thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.1, pp.57-60.  Epub 30-Abr-2010. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492010005000002.

A 31-year-old car accident victim was admitted with progressive inspiratory dyspnea, followed by intense dissecting thoracic pain, without any irradiation. The patient’s Glasgow score was 15, while his ISS was 26 (16 + 9 + 1). Laboratory and radiographic results were normal. One day after hospital admission, the patient underwent surgery due to a fractured tibia, being discharged from hospital 3 days later. However, worsening shortness of breath and thoracic pain were observed and he returned to the hospital 2 days later. A helical computed tomography was done revealing a thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm. Endovascular surgery with endoprosthesis implantation was the treatment of choice.

Palavras-chave : Pseudoaneurysm; thoracic aorta; thoracic injuries.
