Abstract

The article presents a case study of a 10-year old male who was involved in a motor vehicle crash resulting in transection of the abdominal aorta at the origin of the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA). The report performed an endovascular repair of traumatic aortic transection using a Zenith iliac limb endograft through a right common femoral artery cut down. Computed tomography of a child's abdominal aorta reveals a well-healed aorta with the satisfactory position of endograft.
