Abstract

Deceleration injuries of the aorta may occur without aortic disruption. We describe the case of a patient with a subintimal hematoma of the aorta that resolved within 48 hours. Serial arteriography confirmed the diagnosis and excluded aortic rupture. Thoracic exploration was not performed.
