The case of a patient with impending rupture of a post-traumatic chronic false aneurysm of the ascending aorta is presented. It is stressed that chronic false aneurysms of the ascending aorta are rare and that a chronic false aneurysm of any part of the aorta carries a high risk of delayed rupture at any time.
