Traumatic rupture of the aorta following blunt trauma is a well described entity. Rupture of the ascending aorta is frequently associated with concomitant cardiac damage and immediate death with few long-term survivors described in the literature. A case of traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta discovered two decades after the initial injury is reported.
