An operative case of a chronic traumatic thoracic aortic aneurysm 16 years after a jet skiing crash; report of a case



An operative case of a chronic traumatic thoracic aortic aneurysm 16 years after a jet skiing crash; report of a case



Kyobu Geka. Japanese Journal of Thoracic Surgery 67(6): 486-488



Injury of the thoracic aorta following a major blunt trauma to the chest occurs most frequently at the aortic isthmus and more than 80% of such patients die within 1st 30 minutes. However, less than 5% of patients survive and later develop chronic thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA). Usually, most cases of chronic traumatic TAA have no symptoms for a long time after an accident. We report a case of successful repair for a chronic traumatic TAA 16 years after a jet skiing crash. A 37-year-old woman complained of left chest pain, back pain, and cough. A computed tomography showed a descending TAA, which was 5 cm in a maximum diameter. The final diagnosis was chronic traumatic TAA. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) or graft replacement was considered as an operative procedure. We performed graft replacement to avoid complications of TEVAR, considering her small external iliac arteries.
