Abstract

Less than one percent of trauma admission cases are categorized as pediatric neck trauma [13]. Nevertheless, due to an increasingly mobile society, there has been an increasing frequency of pediatric neck trauma with motor vehicle accidents being the most common mechanism of injury [8].We present a case of laryngotracheal separation from a blunt, clothesline injury to the neck in a pediatric patient. We also review the literature and discuss the benefit of balloon airway dilation and its assistance in the management of laryngeal trauma and its resultant effects.
