Esophageal displacement to the right at the level of the aortic arch and isthmus, as marked by an opaque nasoesophageal tube on anteroposterior chest roentgenogram is a useful sign in diagnosing traumatic aortic rupture. Finding this esophageal displacement in patients with blunt chest trauma warrants an immediate thoracic aortogram for demonstration of possible aortic injury.
