Aortoiliac dissection after blunt abdominal trauma: case report.

Abstract

The distal abdominal aorta is rarely injured after blunt trauma but a direct blow to the abdomen from a seatbelt or handlebars may cause intimal dissection or rupture. We present the diagnosis and surgical management of aortoiliac dissection in a 16-year-old boy injured in a motorcycle accident. The technical aspects of vascular repair are emphasized.
