    Tracheobronchial ruptures following blunt thoracic trauma are rare in children. To our knowledge, there is no reported case of tracheobronchial rupture due to compression under the barrel of a cannon. The involvement of both the trachea and right main bronchus is highly unusual. The case of a...

    0,1 to 7% of all chest traumas have tracheobronchial injury. Tracheobronchial rupture cases with finding of hemoptysis have been diagnosed earlier than with other symptoms. By this way bronchoscopy and surgery could be applied short period after trauma. 21-year old male patient was admitted to...

    Tracheobronchial rupture is a rare but life-threatening injury encountered after blunt chest traumas. It is especially seen in pediatric patients because of the complete conduction of traumatic kinetic energy and the direct exposure to the airway, due to the increased elasticity of the chest...
