(A) Chest-radiograph: Widened mediastinum (*) and rib fractures (arrow). (B) CT-angiography: aortic calcified aneurysm. (C) Sagittal-MIP reconstruction: aneurysm origin at the isthmus (arrow). Axial-CT plane(D): wall concentric calcification. Volumetric reconstructions (E and F): narrow-necked pseudoaneurysm.
 
CT-angiography axial planes before (A) and after (B) stent placement. Pseudoaneurysm exclusion with aortic lumen permeable (L). Oblique-sagittal-MIP (C) and volumetric reconstruction (D) showed proper positioning of the stent, without complications related to the procedure.
