Abstract: Accurate assessment of the extent of an acute laryngotracheal injury has permitted treatment ranging from observation to open reduction. The keystones for successful treatment of acute laryngeal trauma and hence for prevention of laryngeal stenosis are: Accurate evaluation of the larynx using laryngoscopy and CT scanning. Immediate airway management to provide a safe airway. Repair of displaced laryngeal fractures and mucosal lacerations with the placement of a soft silicone stent in the severe cases.
