AIM: Chronic traumatic thoracic aneurysms are results of blunt trauma of the chest during motorcar accident. Treatment of choice is the endovascular procedure with stent-graft.
METHODS: Between 2000-2012 in General and Thoracic Surgery Department 30 patients with post-traumatic aneurysms were operated. In all cases aneurysm was located below left subclavian artery and in 63% developed during road traffic accident.
RESULTS: All patients were operated on with 100% technical success and no device failure was noticed. None of patients died during the endovascular procedure and no serious complications like spinal cord ischemia was observed. In one (3%) case, where left subclavian artery was covered, stroke was diagnosed treated conservatively.
CONCLUSION: At long-term follow-up, one endoleak type IA was found, solved with balloon-plasty. Two patients died due to cardiac diseases.
