PMID:  9456125     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Endovascular covered stents were successfully applied to temporarily halt hemoptysis and postpone surgical intervention in a 69-year-old man with a ruptured anastomotic false aneurysm of the distal aortic arch. Surgical graft implantation was performed successfully by the elephant trunk technique 14 days after the endovascular stent-grafting, at which time aspiration pneumonia had subsided.
