Abstract

Nonpenetrating traumatic injury of the thoracic aorta and/or its major branch is usually fatal and the treatment of this condition carries extremely high risk because of associated visceral organ injuries. Accurate diagnosis have been difficult. However, recently developed multi-slice helical computed tomography (CT) is highly sensitive in early detection of precise location of injury and associating injuries of other organs. Here we report our case with combined thoracic aortic and left subclavian artery injuries, diagnosed by 3-dimensional (3-D) CT and treated successfully.
