PMID:  2312868     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Blunt injury to the abdominal aorta has been previously reported. Due to the severity of the lesion, radiologic studies other than aortography are rarely undertaken prior to emergency surgery. We report a case in which CT initially demonstrated an angiographically and surgically proven rupture of the infrarenal abdominal aorta due to blunt trauma.
