Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tracheobronchial disruption is an uncommon injury usually associated with severe blunt thoracic trauma and rarely occurs in isolation. We report a case of isolated rupture of the right main bronchus occurring after a crush injury without an associated pneumothorax. Difficulties in the diagnosis of this condition are briefly discussed and an algorithm of management presented.
