Figure 2: (a) Computed tomography angiography axial section showing a penetrating aortic ulcer of descending thoracic aorta with surrounding thrombus compressing the esophagus which appears slit-like (white arrow). (b) Preoperative barium swallow showing diffusely narrowed lower end of the esophagus due to extrinsic compression and is displaced anteriorly (white arrowhead). (c) Postoperative computed tomography angiography picture shows widely opened up esophagus (yellow arrow). (d) Postoperative barium swallow shows relief extrinsic compression with free passage of contrast into stomach without holdup (black arrowhead)
