Severe Thoracic Aorta Stenosis After Endovascular Treatment of Blunt Thoracic Aortic Injury

Résumé

Ten months after thoracic endovascular treatment of blunt thoracic aortic injury, a 15-year-old woman was admitted for chest pain, headache, and lower limbs weakness. Emergent computed tomography showed almost occlusive stenosis at the distal junction between the thoracic stent graft and the native thoracic due to clot formation inside the graft. She subsequently presented a pulmonary edema with concurrent anuria. Emergent angioplasty and stenting using nitinol bare stent was successfully performed. Blood pressure gradient between radial and femoral arteries decreased from 100 mm Hg to 25 mm Hg. Peripheral hypoperfusion signs progressively resolved and kidney function normalized. The patient was discharged 12 days later. Subcutaneous curative anticoagulation during 1 month associated with single antiplatelet therapy was administered. After a 2-month follow-up, the patient was asymptomatic and control CT scan showed a patent stent graft and a patent distal bare stent.
