Abstract

We reported two cases of blunt complete transection of cervical trachea. One case, a 21-year-old man, had a complete cervical tracheal transection combined with esophageal transection and bilateral reccurent nerve injury in a motor bicycle accident. In other case, a 55-year-old man, suffered complete cervical tracheal transection in a power shovel, with combined cervical spine and bilateral reccurent nerve injury. Both underwent primary end-to-end tracheal anastomosis. If the airway can be maintained the prognosis of patients with complete transection of the cervical trachea is generally good. It is suggested that extensive examination during and after operation is very important for these cases.
