A patient with a rupture of the ascending aorta after a non-penetrating chest trauma is presented. The aortic tear, angiographically demonstrated, was situated just above the left coronary ostium. Only three examples of angiographically established cases of rupture of the ascending aorta were found in the literature. The point that the distal tip of the catheter should be placed proximally in the ascending aorta, is emphasized. After operation the patient went well.

    The authors tried to determine the validity of sixteen well-known signs indicating an acute traumatic rupture of the aorta on plain chest radiographs of 22 patients. Angiographically 11 of the patients had a tear at the aortic isthmus. It turned out that seven of the sixteen signs (widened...
