Trachea-bronchial ruptures sterning from blunt thorax traumas are patologies that scarcely occur. The media end publications began to work more on this subject recently as a result of increasing traffic accidents and blunt traumas caused by falling down from high places (1,2,3). Also, in out cauntry increasing volume of traffic accidents results in serious thorax traumas and trachea-bronchial injuries. Major respiratory ruptures that follow blunt thorax traumas are deadly injuries. In such cases, it's very, important to diagnose the bronchial injury, determine the type (whether it's complete/incomplete rupture, opening to the pleura), it's clinical eridence and give surgical assistance at early stage in order to save pulmonary functions with this punpose, two cases were presented under our treatment in our clinic in the last two mounths.
