Associated head and/or cervical spine injury should be suspected, especially in the presence of fractures of the more resistant facial bones. Facial fractures may not involve only the anterior bones. The fracture line may extend posteriorly and involve the pterygoid process of the sphenoid bone, the posterior buttress of the facial skeleton, which can cause posterior displacement of the face and obstruction of the nasopharynx. In a LeFort 1 fracture the pterygoid process is damaged at its inferior tip with minimal 2 Airway Management in Trauma displacement.

Patients operated for definitive repair a few days after injury will present with a CT scan delineating the skeletal injury. Both two-dimensional spiral CT scanning with axial, coronal, and sagittal projections and three-dimensional CT scans provide adequate evaluation of maxillofacial fractures, aiding in planning of airway management [82]. The selection of an airway management technique in the presence of a maxillofacial fracture is based on the patient’s presenting condition. Most patients with isolated facial injuries do not require emergency tracheal intubation.

For 2 Airway Management in Trauma example, acute rupture of a transverse atlantal ligament produces significant instability despite the absence of a neurological deficit and normal alignment while the patient is lying supine on a CT scanner. Likewise in a head-injured patient, a mild to moderate central cord syndrome that may occur in situations of spinal cord injury without radiologic findings (SCIWORA) may be difficult to discern with CT scan. Finally, human error is always possible, and misread CT scans by inexperienced clinicians can be a reason for a missed injury.
