Sir,

We thank Dr. Pradeep Divate and Dr. Naseem Mulla for having read our article with interest. As pointed out in their experience, this particular mode of carotid injury is not uncommon.

An important message in our paper is that primary prevention of this potentially devastating condition is needed by way of increasing the awareness. Children should be taught that once they have foreign bodies (tooth brush, chop sticks, spoon etc.) in their mouth, it may not be safe to walk or run around. At the level of the health care provider, the presence of lucid interval in such injuries should be kept in mind.
