Abstract

Laryngeal injury is a life-threatening risk in contact sports. Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) can occur as a result of trauma. Athletes can return to monitored training within weeks of laryngeal surgery. Due to the rarity and complexity of laryngeal trauma in sport, effective management requires a multidisciplinary approach.
