Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is the case of a pediatric blunt trauma patient who presented with a concurrent blunt traumatic aortic and severe brain injury. We describe successful simultaneous management of the aortic and brain injury with delayed endovascular repair of the aorta. This report details the importance of multidisciplinary discussion in definitive management of children with these concurrent injuries and the endovascular technical considerations in children.
