Abstract

Traumatic aortic rupture due to blunt trauma in the pediatric population is rare. The management of this unusual injury has largely been extrapolated from the adult literature and is evolving. Open surgical repair is the accepted treatment; however, endograft repair is a promising alternative, which can serve as a definitive or bridging technique in select patients who are high-risk surgical candidates. The authors report the successful deployment of an endograft limb to correct a traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the aorta in a high-risk pediatric patient.
