Özet

Endovascular stent-grafting of the aorta, as an alternative to open surgical techniques, is gaining in popularity everyday, especially in high-risk patients. Acute or chronic traumatic lesions of the descending aorta, especially after motor vehicle accidents, constitute such a group with a high-risk of morbidity and mortality.
