Abstract

Aspiration of a tooth in facial trauma is a known complication. There have been few reports on the consequences of maxillofacial trauma, especially when the patient is intubated. We report 2 complicated cases of multiple teeth aspiration and their removal in intubated patients. A special technique using flexible bronchoscopy with simultaneous tracheotomy was used for safe and successful removal of aspirated teeth. We suggest that simultaneous tracheostomy is a safe and effective method for removal of a bronchial foreign body in a maxillofacial traumatized patient.
