Survival following ruptures of the thoracic aorta at sites other than the aortic isthmus is exceedingly rare. Herein we describe a successful outcome in a 62-year-old woman with ascending and isthmic aortic lacerations compounded by disruptions of the subclavian-innominate artery junction and the left vertebral-subclavian junction. Chest wall instability and a myocardial contusion further complicated her case.
