Abstract

A case of distal tracheal rupture is described, literature review reveals two previously reported cases of neonatal distal tracheal rupture, as well as 14 cases of anterior subglottic rupture. All patients had shoulder dystocia, and 59% had associated brachial plexus injury. Delayed diagnosis (>3 days) was common in the distal tracheal group (66%), compared to 0% in the anterior subglottic group. The 2 distal tracheal rupture patients were initially managed conservatively, but ultimately required open repair. Distal tracheal rupture is exceedingly rare and more difficult to diagnose and manage than the more common anterior subglottic rupture.
