Aim of the study was to validate the use of endoluminal stent-graft treatment as an alternative to conventional surgery in patients affected by blunt chest trauma and aortic disruption with multiple associated lesions. We report the case of a young female admitted with diagnosis of descending thoracic aortic transection and multiple traumas following a car accident. Spiral computed tomography revealed circular disruption of thoracic aorta immediately after isthmus region with intussusception of leaflets and pseudo-coartation...

Five clinical cases were treated with the implantation of an apical-aortic conduit. Two adult patients were affected by obstructive myocardiopathy associated to subaortic membrane in one case, and three children by different forms of aortic stenosis (subaortic tunnel in one case; subaortic tunnel associated to severe coartation of the thoracic aorta in one case; aortic annulus hypoplasia in one case). A double outlet left ventricle has been created in all cases by implanting a composite prosthesis between the apex by implanting a composite prosthesis between the apex of the left ventricle and the aorta...

It depends upon the differential color changes between fingers and toes after releasing a manual compression of feet and hands in the elevated position.
