Abstract

In a 15 years period 24 patients underwent surgery for acute traumatic rupture of thoracic aorta. Diagnosis was achieved by computed axial tomography in 11 cases; by aortography in 17 cases, by digital angiography in 7 cases and by transesophageal echo in 5 cases. Twenty-two patients underwent emergency procedures. Time interval between trauma and operation ranged from 4 hours to 19 days. The operation in 21 cases was done with left extracorporeal bypass. Associated lesions were treated in 15 cases. Three hospital deaths occured. Two patients developed paraplegia and two had transied superior limbs plegia. As late results radiological controls did not show any residual lesion at the thoracic aorta side.
