BACKGROUND Traumatic aortic injury (TAI) remains a leading cause of death after blunt force. Thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR) has been widely adopted as an alternative to open repair for the treatment of TAI. Although significant short-term benefits have been demonstrated for patients undergoing TEVAR, longer-term follow-up data are lacking. METHODS Trauma registry data were analyzed. Follow-up data were gathered from a combination of medical records, imaging, telephone interviews… CONTINUE READING
