Rapid deceleration injury causing blunt thoracic trauma can result in injury to the thoracic aorta. Rupture of the aortic isthmus is the most common presentation; however, injury can occur more proximally in the arch vessels or the aortic root. We present an unusual case of simultaneous innominate artery disruption with aortic valve rupture after a motor vehicle accident, and we discuss issues surrounding the diagnosis and operative management of this rare, but life-threatening condition.
