Abstract

Traumatic aortic injury is a leading cause of death in patients with blunt trauma of the thorax. More than 120 patients with traumatic aortic injury have been admitted to our institution. This institutional experience is the source of the material that is presented in this pictorial review. The appearance of traumatic aortic injury on chest radiography, thoracic aortography and CT scan is demonstrated.
