AbstractA 16-year-old boy presented to a level I trauma center after multiple gun shot wounds and a motorcycle crash. He was in profound hemorrhagic shock and had multiple traumatic injuries, including a right common iliac arterial injury. The vessel was shunted for damage control and subsequently repaired primarily. On hospital day 18, he experienced dehiscence of the anastomosis requiring urgent surgery. The artery was ultimately repaired with an expandable polytetrafluoroethylene stent graft deployed in an open fashion through the site of injury. We discuss the use of stent grafts as an interesting alternative to suture repair after anastomotic disruption.
