ORTIZ NARETTO, Alvaro Emilio. Rol de la endoscopía en la lesión traumática de la vía aérea. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp.114-121. ISSN 1852-236X.

Injuries to the tracheobronchial tree (aTB) is an uncommon event, but with a high risk of life. The cause can be iatrogenic, secondary to medical and traumatic procedures by closed or penetrating trauma. Its incidence is not exactly known. The difficulty in establishing the incidence of the traumatic injury is due to the fact that 30 to 80% of trauma victims die at the scene of the accident due to the associated injuries. The prognosis of patients who reach the hospital will depend essentially on the characteristics of the airway (VA) lesion and associated lesions.

Keywords : Tracheobronchial tree lesions; Traumatic injury; Endoscopy.
