Abstract

The traumatic lesions of the trachea and main bronchi require emergency surgical treatment. The proper choice of operative approach is largely dependent on the precise early diagnosis and on the determining of the exact location of the lesions. Operative tactics must aim at optimal preservation of the functional lung parenchyma and have to include reconstructive and plastic procedures.
