An acute rupture of the ascending aorta occurred in a 12-year-old boy after balloon angioplasty and was successfully treated by emergency covered stent implantation during resuscitation and preparation for support with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Neuroprotection with sedation, core temperature cooling and mild hyperventilation were undertaken. The boy recovered quickly. There were no neurological sequalae with a good interventional result at discharge and at follow-up after 9 months.
