Abstract
Traumatic and iatrogenic injuries of the trachea are uncommon. These injuries which are usually managed by surgery are associated with a high morbidity and mortality. In case of suspected lacerations, bronchoscopy remains the diagnostic procedure of choice. We present two unusual iatrogenic tracheal lacerations due to endotracheal stenting and intubation which were managed by primary suture with coverage of the suture line.
