- 1.Traumatic aortic rupture is a common, highly lethal injury. Without surgery, post-injury survival is precarious for the majority. A few form so-called ‘stable aneurysms’.
- 2.Early diagnosis rests on constant awareness of the prevalence of this injury in sudden deceleration accidents, and critical appraisal of clinical and radiological signs.
- 3.Aortography is essential in confirming or refuting the diagnosis.
- 4.Chronic traumatic asymptomatic aneurysms are liable to complications. Surgical repair is recommended.
