Chronic traumatic thoracic aneurysms are results of blunt trauma of the chest during motorcar accident. Treatment of choice is endovascular procedure with stent-graft. Between 2000-2012 in General and Thoracic Surgery Dept. 30 patients with posttraumatic aneurysms were operated. In all cases aneurysm was located below left subclavian artery and in 63% developed during road traffic accident. All patients were operated on with 100% technical success and no device failure was noticed. None of patients died during 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. In long-term follow-up, 1 endoleak type IA was found, solved with balloon-plasty. 2 patients died due to cardiac diseases.
