 en Penetrating Neck Injuries involving the Larynx: A Report of three cases.
Sharma, S B. & Amata, A O.

Abstract

Penetrating neck injuries are injuries that penetrate the platysma and are a major cause of morbidity and mortality because of the vital structures confined in the neck area. Injuries involving the larynx are especially dangerous because of the risk of airway compromise. These injuries could be intentional or accidental and the mechanisms and severity vary. Management can be challenging and sometimes controversial. We present 3 cases illustrating different mechanisms of occurrence and highlighting some of the challenging associated with management with suggestions for optimal management.
