Successful endovascular management of an aortic rupture following stent placement for severe atherosclerotic stenosis: A case report.

Author information

  • 1Inova Fairfax Hospital, Falls Church, Virginia, USA.


Aortic rupture during endovascular procedures is a devastating complication that mandates expedient intervention. The present report describes a case in which endovascular treatment was used to successfully manage an aortic rupture following placement of a covered stent graft for severe infrarenal aortic stenosis. Successful management of this case was the result of the procedure being performed in an operating room under appropriate anesthesia and close hemodynamic monitoring. Bilateral common femoral arterial access and use of covered aortic stent grafts also contributed to a favourable outcome.
