Abstract

Acute laryngeal trauma is a great challenge for the otoloaryngologist. Early recognition, accurate evaluation and proper treatment may be crucial to immediate survival and long-term function.

 

Objective: To describe an endoscopically-guided open reduction and adaptation plate fixation of an acute laryngeal fracture secondary to vehicular accident.

 

Methods:

 

  1. Study Design: Surgical Innovation/ Case Report
  2. Setting: Tertiary Hospital in Metro Manila

 

Results: Post-operative follow-up showed good vocal fold function and arytenoid position, with no food regurgitation, signs of aspiration or penetration on fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of

swallowing.

 

Conclusion: Endoscopic guidance allows higher magnification minimizing iatrogenic mucosal damage during manipulation.

 

Keywords: laryngeal trauma, endoscopic technique, rigid fixation, fracture
