Abstract: We report the case of a 29-year-old man with left blunt chest trauma resulting in an intimal tear of the proximal descending aorta, for which he underwent successful thoracic endovascular graft stenting. He subsequently developed progressive left lung collapse, and bronchoscopy revealed left bronchial disruption. A left thoracotomy with end-to-end anastomosis of the left bronchus was performed successfully. The literature from 6 other similar cases of concomitant aortic and bronchial injuries was reviewed. © 2004 by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
