Abstract

Traumatic aortic rupture is at the present time considered a life-threatening condition that requires emergent surgical intervention. Conventional surgical repair carries a certain risk of mortality and morbidity. Since the introduction of aortic stent-graft, endovascular repair has gradually become a new alternative surgical approach for treating traumatic aortic rupture. We hereby present the first case of a successful endovascular repair for traumatic aortic rupture in the Taiwan area.
