n SA Journal of Radiology - Endovascular stent grafting of traumatic aortic arch pseudo-aneurysm : case report




Endovascular stent graft repair for the treatment of post-traumatic aortic rupture is emerging as a safe, minimally invasive and attractive alternative to surgery. This report covers the importance of computer tomographic (CT) angiography as a non-invasive imaging modality in the diagnoses of post-traumatic aortic rupture and the role of CT in pre-endovascular stent work-up. A detailed discussion on the endovascular procedure including the major limitations to stent insertion follows, and a comparison of endovascular stent graft versus surgery.
