FERNANDEZ CARMONA, A. et al. Descending thoracic aortic rupture, endoprosthetic treatment. Med. Intensiva [online]. 2011, vol.35, n.4, pp.256-258. ISSN 0210-5691.
Aortic rupture, independently of its location and etiology, is an extremely serious condition that leads to death rapidly. There is currently no consensus on whether endovascular treatment of the descending thoracic aortic rupture is superior to conventional surgical repair in terms of mid-or long-terms outcome. We describe our experience with 13 patients from January 2005 to January 2009 to evaluate the results in patients with descending thoracic aortic rupture undergoing endoprosthetic management.
