Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the field of Otorhinolaryngology, the treatment of tracheal stenosis is still subject to great problems. Attempts to treat the tracheal stenosis had been done from time to time in order to establish the proper and the best method. It seems that the proper method of treatment depends on the severity of the disease as well as the situation and condition of each case. Sometimes repititive treatment is necessary and moreover, combination of the procedures should be considered. Several methods advocated by the experts were discussed in this paper. A case of stenosis of the trachea due to prolonged intubation is reported, and the combined treatment is discussed. Hyoid bone release enables longer resection and approximation of trachea and combination of end-to-end anastomosis and insertion of T-tube prevents the reoccurance of stenosis on stitched area.
