Posterior glottic stenosis (PGS) is a rare but life-threatening condition mostly caused by damage to the interarytenoid mucosa by an endotracheal tube. In surgical treatment of PGS, airway patency is prioritized, and the laryngeal functions involved in swallowing and phonation are considerably sacrificed. In the majority of cases, lateralization of a vocal fold or partial excision of a vocal fold and arytenoid cartilage results in glottal closure insufficiency and deterioration of phonatory function. We present the first report of transcricothyroid endoscopic subglottic surgery to treat a 46-year-old man with PGS who was intubated for 10 days...

Wegener's granulomatosis is a necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis of autoimmune origin that primarily affects the upper and lower airways and kidneys. It is very rare in children and adolescents. When started at a young age it is often associated with subglottic stenosis. Subglottic stenosis is a potentially fatal manifestation of Wegener's granulomatosis. Its diagnosis requires a high index of suspicion since it might develop in the absence of other signs of activity. Occasionally, subglottic stenosis may present as the initial manifestation of the disease...

Subglottic stenosis is an uncommon structural abnormality that can pose as a difficulty for patients undergoing surgery, and treatment is complex due to the special anatomical location. Pulmonary nodule resection in patients with subglottic stenosis is challenging and has not yet been reported. Here we present a case of pulmonary nodule resection in a patient with subglottic stenosis using uniportal thoracoscopy under spontaneous ventilation anesthesia (SVA). Compared with traditional double lumen endotracheal intubation, we believe this modified technique can significantly reduce airway trauma, and accelerate patient recovery...

A retrospective epidemiological study of patients treated for idiopathic subglottic stenosis (ISS) during 2003-2013 at Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet, was undertaken to assess its incidence, management and treatment outcomes. Out of a total of 123 patients with subglottic stenosis (84 female, 39 men), 38 patients were diagnosed with ISS, all of whom were female. Of these, 23 lived in the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority, representing an incidence of 0.2 per 100,000 (95% CI 0.13-0.3) in this region of 2...

Importance: Optimal management of subglottic stenosis has not been established. Endoscopic techniques include balloon dilation, radial incisions with carbon dioxide laser or cold knife, and combinations of techniques. Adjunctive measures include mitomycin application and glucocorticoid injection. Objective: To determine whether surgical technique or adjunctive measures are associated with duration between surgical procedures. Design, Setting, and Participants: Adult patients with subglottic stenosis treated endoscopically between 1995-2015 at a quaternary academic medical center were identified...

Neck trauma is a very important surgical emergency faced by ENT surgeons in day to day practice. They are potentially life threatening conditions due to the presence of many vital structures in this area. Timely presentation to the referral centre and proper multidisciplinary approach towards management plays a pivotal role in the healing pattern of the wound and prevention of serious complication like shock, sepsis, laryngeal stenosis or fistula formation. A retrospective study was done in ENT Department, NSCB Medical College, Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, India during the period of 2014-2016...

Subglottic stenosis is a known complication of a traumatic and prolonged intubation. In a child, subglottic area is narrower and more prone to damage by an oversized or overinflated endotracheal tube. The stenosis can present with complaints of change in voice, croup, or respiratory obstruction. Those presenting with respiratory obstruction require immediate diagnosis under direct laryngoscopy and timely corrective intervention under general anesthesia. A 4-year-old child came to the emergency department with severe respiratory obstruction...

PURPOSE: Congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) and a single right lung treated with slide tracheoplasty (ST) has relatively high rates of mortality and morbidity. We report a single institution's experience with adjunctive procedures at the time of ST to reduce postoperative tracheal obstruction in patients with a single right lung and CTS. METHODS: With IRB approval, 8 patients with a single right lung and CTS who underwent ST in our institution between 2008 and 2016 were reviewed...

REVIEW
Kosaku Maeda
Pediatric airway surgery is a challenging field in pediatric surgery. Laryngotracheal stenosis has a variety of congenital and acquired conditions that require precise assessment and tailored treatment for each individual patient. About 90% of acquired conditions are represented by subglottic stenosis (SGS) resulting as a complication of tracheal intubation. Congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) is a rare and life-threatening malformation, usually associated with complete tracheal rings along a variable length of the trachea...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the level of sedation in intubated children as a risk factor for the development of subglottic stenosis. METHODS: All patients between 30 days and 5 years of age who required endotracheal intubation in the pediatric intensive care unit between 2013 and 2014 were included in this prospective study. They were monitored daily and COMFORT-B scores were obtained. Flexible fiber-optic laryngoscopy was performed within eight hours of extubation, and repeated seven to ten days later if the first examination showed moderate to severe laryngeal injuries...

Introduction Tracheostomy is the commonest surgical procedure in intensive care units (ICUs). It not only provides stable airway and facilitates pulmonary toilet and ventilator weaning, but also decreases the direct laryngeal injury of endotracheal intubation, and improves patient comfort and daily living activity. Objective The objective of this study is to assess the incidence, indications, timing, complications (early and late), and the outcome of tracheostomy on patients in the intensive care units (ICU) at a university hospital in a developing country...

Tuberculosis (TB) is among the top infectious causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide and is associated with frequent pulmonary damage despite microbiological cure. Patients with treated TB may remain lifelong sufferers of disabling structural and functional sequelae of the disease, which subsequently impair quality of life. Long-term follow-up studies have revealed that many patients with treated pulmonary TB show signs of permanent impairment of their lung function. Impairment is variable in pattern and severity, ranging from none to severe, and shows restrictive, obstructive, or mixed patterns...

We present a case of impassable subglottic stenosis scheduled for tracheal resection and reconstruction managed by establishing a supraglottic airway. Despite careful preoperative evaluation, the stenosis was localized higher than anticipated, rendering conventional intubation impossible. Laryngeal mask bridging to cross-field ventilation was feasible and jet ventilation and cardiopulmonary bypass were available as emergency strategies. Surgery and emergence went uneventful. Perioperative considerations are discussed in this report...

OBJECTIVE: The aetiology and outcomes for patients with acquired subglottic stenosis are highly variable. This study aimed to identify risk factors for subglottic stenosis and patient characteristics that predict long-term clinical outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on 63 patients with subglottic stenosis and 63 age-matched controls. Patient demographics and clinical characteristics were compared. Subglottic stenosis patients were further grouped according to tracheostomy status (i...

The rare and potentially fatal complication of asystole during direct laryngoscopy is linked to direct vagal stimulation. This case describes asystole in an 85-year-old female who underwent suspension microlaryngoscopy with tracheal dilation for subglottic stenosis. Quick recognition of this rare event with immediate cessation of laryngoscopy resulted in the return of normal sinus rhythm. This incident emphasizes the implications of continued vigilance during laryngoscopy and the importance of communication between the anesthesia and surgical staff to identify and treat this rare complication...
