Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Endovascular stent graft repair of traumatic vessel injuries is gaining worldwide acceptance as a minimally invasive alternative to open surgical repair. However, effective endovascular repair fails if the aneurysm is not completely excluded. Conversion to open surgery may be unavoidable in such cases. Herein we describe the case of a 45-year-old man who was referred to our hospital with a pseudoaneurysm of the proximal brachiocephalic artery caused by biopsy during diagnostic medianoscopy. The pseudoaneurysm was primarily treated by stent-graft implantation into the proximal brachiocephalic artery. As a result of the unfavorable location of the lesion exclusion of the aneurysm failed and the initial therapy had to be extended to open reconstruction of the brachiocephalic artery. A bypass procedure from the aortic arch to the right common carotid artery was performed with reinsertion of the right subclavian artery to exclude the pseudoaneurysm.
