A 17 year old healthy young man suffered a motor-vehicle accident with severe polytrauma. During the rehabilitation a slight hypertension and a blood pressure difference of 30-40 mmHg between arms and legs was recognized. Mindful of a possible aortic lesion, an angio-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a 2.7×4.2 cm thoracic false aneurysm at the descending aorta. About 1 month after initial trauma, a Talent stent was implanted. The postinterventional period was uneventful. The patient was discharged on the 5th postoperative day.
