Trauma to the sub­cla­vian ­artery and its ­branches is ­rare, and usu­ally the ­result of pen­e­trating inju­ries. ­Blunt ­trauma ­presents its own pecu­liar man­age­ment dif­fi­cul­ties, par­tic­u­larly ­when ­causing hae­mor­rhage ­into the tho­racic ­cavity. Car­di­oth­o­racic sur­geons may be ­asked to ­deal ­with ­such ­cases, so an under­standing of the ­anatomy and ­options for sur­gical ­access are essen­tial. We ­present a ­case of ­blunt avul­sion of the supras­cap­ular ­artery ­resulting in mas­sive hae­moth­orax, a pre­vi­ously unre­ported ­injury.
