TRAUMA OF THE LARYNX

TRAUMA OF THE LARYNX Abstract In this paper we present the results of clinical observations on industrial, criminal, accidental and suicidal trauma of the larynx. Their publication seems especially called for because of the dearth of literature on the subject. With a single exception1 no textbook on the throat gives any consideration to the subject of laryngeal trauma. Textbooks dealing with traumatic surgery in general mention the larynx briefly if at all. This neglect of the subject is curious when we consider that the larynx occupies a position of utmost importance on both the absolutely vital "lines of communication: the air and food passages."1 The accepted idea that laryngeal injury is rare may have something to do with the paucity of literature. Undoubtedly the rarity of incidence has been exaggerated, but relative infrequency makes it all the more necessary that the fundamentals of treatment be generally well known, and this is particularly necessary in cases References 1.

Abstract

Abstract In this paper we present the results of clinical observations on industrial, criminal, accidental and suicidal trauma of the larynx.

Textbooks dealing with traumatic surgery in general mention the larynx briefly if at all. This neglect of the subject is curious when we consider that the larynx occupies a position of utmost importance on both the absolutely vital "lines of communication: the air and food passages."1 The accepted idea that laryngeal injury is rare may have something to do with the paucity of literature.
