Case description

Innominate artery perforations refer to disruptions in the wall of the innominate artery, a major blood vessel arising from the arch of the aorta. These perforations can occur due to various causes, such as trauma, atherosclerosis, or iatrogenic injuries during medical procedures. The innominate artery, also known as the brachiocephalic artery, supplies blood to the right common carotid and right subclavian arteries. Perforations may lead to hemorrhage, potentially causing life-threatening complications. Management typically involves prompt diagnosis through imaging studies, followed by appropriate interventions, which may include endovascular techniques or surgical repair, depending on the severity and underlying cause of the perforation. Early detection and intervention are crucial to improve outcomes and prevent further complications associated with innominate artery perforations.
