ORTIZ, P. et al. Management of thoracic aorta traumatism in 5 multiple traumatized patients. Med. Intensiva [online]. 2008, vol.32, n.4, pp.194-197. ISSN 0210-5691.

Thoracic aorta traumatism is a lesion associated to high morbidity-mortality at the site of the accident. In the 90's, treatment by placement of an endovascular stent was generalized with good results. In this work, we present a series of 5 clinical cases of patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of our hospital during the year 2006. Out of a total of 619 patients admitted in the same period, 121 (19.5%) were traumatic and 5 (4.13%) had thoracic aorta traumatisms. All of the patients were diagnosed by thoracic helical computed tomography on admission. Four patients had a pseudoaneurism of the aorta and underwent an operation. Three received endovascular treatment within the first 36 hours and the fourth on day 28 of admission. The fifth patient had a lesion of the intima and was not operated on. Posterior evolution was good in all the cases.
