Abstract

Traumatic aortic transection is a life threatening emergency where there is a near-complete tear through all the layers of the aorta due to trauma. This condition is most often lethal and requires immediate medical attention. Symptoms of an aortic rupture may include severe chest pain, back pain, abdominal pain and signs of external chest injury. Treatment should be prompt in hemodynamically unstable patient in the form of endovascular or open surgical technique. We present a twenty nine year old male with aortic transection following motor vehicle accident where an interposition tube graft was placed after trimming the lacerated segments of the aorta under cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient is doing well with two years of follow up at our institution.
