Abstract

A ruptured descending thoracic aortic aneurysm (rDTAA) is a life-threatening condition associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endovascular treatment for rDTAA promotes effective aneurysm exclusion with a minimally invasive approach. The authors report a case of a 76-year-old man with hemodynamically unstable 9-cm-diameter rDTAA treated with emergency thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR).

Keywords

thoracic aortic aneurysm; ruptured aneurysm; endovascular procedures.

Resumo

O aneurisma roto de aorta torácica descendente constitui uma situação ameaçadora associada a alta morbidade e mortalidade. O tratamento endovascular desse tipo de aneurisma promove exclusão eficaz com uma terapêutica minimamente invasiva. Os autores relatam o caso de um paciente do sexo masculino, 76 anos, hemodinamicamente instável, com aneurisma roto de aorta torácica descendente de 9 cm de diâmetro, tratado em caráter emergencial por cirurgia endovascular.

Palavras-chave

aneurisma da aorta torácica; aneurisma roto; procedimentos endovasculares.
