Abstract

Vascular injuries resulting from blunt trauma are uncommon in the pediatric age. In children, there are particular factors that should be taken into account when vascular traumatic lesions are treated: small vessel size or vessel spasm, a higher risk of infection, a tendency for restenosis, and rapid body growth. The endovascular procedure is a minimally invasive, quick technique that restores blood flow immediately. The stent’s fate is the Achille’s heel of this technique; this is the reason why a careful follow-up and further studies are required.
