Blunt abdominal aortic injury from trauma is extremely rare. It is generally from motor vehicular crashes resulting in dissection, intramural hematoma, or free rupture. Timely recognition and treatment of this injury are essential for a chance for survival. To the authors knowledge, this is the first reported case of successful management of this injury, with use of an intravascular stent-graft, in a child. Although open aortic repair has been the only modality used in children, intravascular stent-graft can be another available option in these injuries.
