Endovascular Repair of the Traumatic Dissection of the Subclavian–Axillary Artery: Report of Four Cases
Mohammad Ali Ostovan, Javad Kojuri, Pooyan Dehghani


Traumatic injuries to the subclavian-axillary artery, although uncommon, are associated with high morbidity and mortality rates if not managed promptly. The emergence of endovascular techniques offers an alternative to the surgical management of these injuries. We herein present 4 cases of traumatic subclavian-axillary artery injury with limb ischemia successfully managed via the endovascular approach with non-covered self-expandable stents. We achieved excellent immediate results with limb salvage and without complications. At follow-up by duplex sonography, all the patients had good peripheral pulses and patent revascularized arteries.
