Abstract

We present the case of a 14-year-old healthy boy who presented after being a restrained back seat passenger in a single motor vehicle accident. He was found to have a thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm which was managed with placement of an endovascular stent graft. Initially he recovered, then experienced a syncopal episode, and on repeat imaging was found to have a pericardial rupture with cardiac herniation. He underwent open repair of his pericardium and recovered uneventfully. Thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm and pericardial rupture with cardiac herniation, represent rare potentially life threatening intrathoracic injuries that must be considered and appropriately treated when evaluating pediatric thoracic trauma.
