Introduction. The traumatic rupture of thoracic aorta is a surgical emergency with high risk of morbidity and mortality. Case report. We describe the case of an atypical rupture of retrocardiac thoracic aorta with dissection of brachiocephalic trunk and spleen trauma occurred after a road accident. TC scan and perioperative angiography showed an atypical rupture of thoracic aorta. Conclusion. A combined treatment, endovascular for retrocardiac thoracic aorta and surgical for brachiocephalic artery, has been useful to diminish the hemodinamic and organ ischemic problems associated with open surgery.
