PMID:  11466149     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of an 18-year-old female who developed an extensive hemothorax after blunt chest trauma. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) showed transsection of the aorta at the level of the isthmus and turbulent flows in several places around the aorta. We discuss the contribution of TEE for detecting traumatic injuries to the thoracic aorta.
