Abstract

Descending aortic pathologies carries a high mortality risk due to the location of the aorta and the difficulties of repair. An 83 years old male patient had been admitted via an emergency room with a chief complaint of upper abdominal pain and difficulty of breathing. Investigations showed a huge right hemi-thoracic hematoma associated with extravasation suggesting perforation of the distal descending aorta. TEVAR was planned but he was not suitable for TEVAR. Replacement of the descending aorta was performed successfully under general anesthesia and the use of a shunt from the proximal descending aorta to the abdominal aorta.

Keywords: Perforated Descending Aorta; Extrapleural Hematoma; Graft Bypass and Synthetic Shunt
