Abstract

The past decade has seen major changes in the management of blunt, traumatic thoracic aortic injury. The increasing use and improvement of computed tomography scans and endovascular stent grafts have changed management paradigms by allowing more rapid diagnosis and definitive repair with less physiologic stress on the patient. Short- and long-term data support this trend, as well as the advantages of delayed repair for stable aortic injuries.
