[Extract] Hyoid fractures are common in traumatic injuries to the neck through hanging, strangulation, and, more recently, road traffic accidents in which the anterior body of the hyoid is thrust against the steering wheel. Iatrogenic fracture of the hyoid during surgery to the neck, in particular during cervical spine surgery, is also reported in the literature (Anthony, Martin-Hirsch, & England, 2000). Although the nature of hyoid fractures can vary with etiology, the effect on swallowing is often severe. In most cases of hyoid bone fracture, there are serious associated physiologic and/or neurologic problems that often require immediate priority (Levine & Taub, 2006).
