Fracture of the thyroid cartilage and fixation with miniplate: a case report

Ozan Seymen Sezen1, Şeref Ünver, Mehmet Eken, Ahmet Bozkurt

Laryngeal traumas are rarely seen. A tracheostomy
was performed in a 39-year-old male patient who
developed dyspnea following a neck trauma.
Computed tomography examination revealed fracture
of the thyroid cartilage. He was treated successfully
by open reduction and miniplate fixation.
No problems were detected in airway patency and
voice quality on postoperative controls. No complications
were encountered within a follow-up period
of five months.
