abstract

  • Rupture of the abdominal aorta as the result of blunt trauma is uncommon, due in part to its protected position in the retroperitoneum. Isolated aortic rupture following blunt injury is even more rare. A case of isolated abdominal aortic rupture in a 6-year-old girl following blunt trauma due to an all-terrain vehicle accident is reported. The girl survived following an emergent aortoiliac reconstruction.
