Abstract
Acute injury to the thoracic aorta is a life-threatening and devastating complication following blunt chest trauma. The injury can lead to various types of aortic injury including the formation of false aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm. We reported two cases of acute traumatic aortic injury after motor vehicle accidents. One case had a saccular pseudoaneurysm and another case had complex aortic injury with pseudoaneurysms. We reviewed the chest radiograph and Computed Tomography scan findings.

Key words: Pseudoaneurysm, acute traumatic aortic injury, aortic isthmus.
