Abstract:

Iatrogenic Tracheal Injury (ITI) is a life-threatening complication that requires prompt diagnosis, management, and treatment. When suspected on clinical examination bronchoscopy and CT scan confirms the diagnosis. The case of 16 years old man is presented in whom a large posterolateral tracheal wall defect, was diagnosed after percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy. Bronchoscopy confirmed the tracheal defect and a long Y-tracheobronchial silicone stent was inserted to protect the wound and allow healing with tracheostomy tube inside the stent to ensure ventilation.
We believe that this technique is effective and valuable for large tracheal wall lacerations with no severe complications.
