blunt aortic injury
Blunt Aortic Injury
  • 75% patients die at scene of accident
  • 5% are unstable and die shortly after accident
  • 25% of remainder die of other injuries
  • Traditional approach to repair has been emergent open repair
    • Paraplegia 2-19%, Mortality 15-35%
  • Current trend is appropriately timed urgent repair with an evolving endovascular role
    • Paraplegia 0%, Mortality 0-17%
methods
Methods
  • Comparison of open repair vs. stent for TTAT
  • 1999 to 2011
  • First thoracic aortic stent was October 2005
  • Exclusively stent repair for last 4 years

Approach
stent graft results
Stent Graft Results
  • Stents Used
    • 7 TAG
    • 1 C-TAG
    • 17 Excluder Cuffs
    • 4 AneuRx Cuffs
    • 2 Talent
    • 9 TX2
  • 36/40 immediate technical success
  • 39/40technical success after re-interventions
  • Complete coverage of traumatic tear with no stent migration or endoleaks at most recent follow-up

Case
  • 17 YO male, ejected from car
  • Intracranial bleed, multiple orthopedic injuries, splenic and liver lacerations
  • Bilateral severe pulmonary contusions
  • pO2 55 on 100% FIO2 with 20 PEEP
  • Comminuted aortic tear
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Endovascular stents for BAI can be performed safely with excellent short and mid-term results
  • Time from admission to intervention of BAI is increased in the stent group with no increased mortality
  • Stents for BAI are associated with decreased OR times and intraoperative blood transfusions compared to open
