Abstract: Two patients with blunt traumatic rupture of the diaphragm and thoracic aorta are presented. This combination of injuries may be seen in the multiply-injured patient. Correct interpretation of chest radiographs is essential. If the diagnosis is made early the patient has a good chance of surviving. The eventual functional impairment is mainly related to the associated fractures.
