Abstract

Penetrating injuries of the neck were always considered difficult to manage, mostly because of a dense concentration of vital structures contained in a very small body area. Many of these structures are difficult to examine and technically challenging to expose. The controversy between initial surgical management and a selective conservative approach still exists. This chapter discusses the initial evaluation of penetrating neck injuries and its historical evolution, aiming to offer guidelines in the management of specific complex injuries.
