Tracheal trauma. Chest surgery clinics of North America Shrager, J. B. 2003; 13 (2): 291-304


The etiology, presentation, and management of blunt and penetrating injuries of the trachea has been reviewed. The approach to and outcome following management of more unusual situations such as iatrogenic injuries has also been briefly reviewed. Early recognition of these problems and careful attention to the details of acute management can convert a life-threatening situation into one that can usually be successfully managed by the techniques of tracheal surgery developed and popularized by Dr. Grillo.
