Endovascular management of spontaneous rupture of the left subclavian artery by Edgar Aranda-Michel

June 18, 2019

From the article: Spontaneous rupture of the left subclavian artery is a rare condition that requires immediate surgical intervention. A 21‐year‐old man with a history of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, failed kidney transplant, and history of a type A aortic dissection that was surgically repaired was admitted with altered mental status and hypotension. He was found to have a left subclavian artery rupture. This was successfully managed with emergent thoracic endovascular aortic repair and carotid‐subclavian bypass.
