Traumatic thoracic aortic disruption is a life-threatening lesion associated with a high surgical mortality. Endovascular stent graft repair is a minimal invasive approach that does not require a thoracotomy, aortic cross clamping and cardiopulmonary bypass. We report the use of an endoluminal graft to treat a 58-year-old male, who sustained multiple injuries including thoracic aortic disruption in a sky-diving accident due to failure of deployment of his parachute.
