Laryngeal traumas in children caused by trampoline accidents
Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V02180092
Laryngeal trauma is rare in children due to the anatomical placement and the trauma mechanisms required for injury. Recently the trampoline has become frequent in Danish households leading to more high-energy laryngeal traumas. This case report is about two incidents occurring within a year. The first patient had a laryngeal fracture despite minimum objective findings. The second patient had a compromised airway and needed acute intubation, although she only presented with light hoarseness. We strive to underline the severity of laryngeal trauma in children and briefly discuss the correct handling of these cases.
