Aortic transections are the most fatal aortic injuries that may result from blunt thoracic trauma. Currently, endovascular aortic repair is the preferred treatment modality with low morbidity and mortality rates. Coverage of the left subclavian artery may be necessary to provide a safe landing zone. In such a situation, left subclavian artery flow may be preserved by chimney or periscope techniques. In this article, we report a 43-year-old female patient with acute aortic transection treated by endovascular aortic repair in which periscope graft was used for the left subclavian artery flow endurance.
