How long would the thyroid cartilage fracture line take to disappear, if it is not calcified in a younger patient?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Fracture healing at all ages normally takes six weeks. So we can follow up after six weeks to see if the fracture has healed.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Cartilage healing takes longer only in the setting of repetitive trauma otherwise, the healing process remains the same and takes the same duration.
