Blunt aortic injury (BAI) is a lethal complication of blunt chest trauma. It accounts for up to 18.0% of deaths related to motor vehicle accident. Specific signs and symptoms are frequently absent. The majority of patients who sustain BAI die at the scene. Those who reach the hospital will survive if diagnosis and treatment is provided in timely manner. Several different techniques of repairing the BAI have been reported.

We reported two cases of BAI successfully treated with endovascular graft in acute setting.
