Management of the left subclavian artery during endovascular stent grafting for traumatic aortic injury - a systematic review.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES AND DESIGN: Traumatic thoracic aortic injuries are serious and may be associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endovascular stent grafting is now an established treatment option which often requires proximal landing zone extension through left subclavian artery (LSA) origin coverage.
