Subglotic stenosis

José Luis Che-Morales, Esperanza Figueroa-Hurtado, Arturo Cortes-Télles
BACKGROUND: Based on international epidemiology, some laryngeal diseases could be more frequent at certain ages. The objective was to describe endoscopic findings in patients through distinct decades of age in a laryngoscopy facility. METHODS: retrospective and descriptive study; clinical and endoscopic records were collected from 1493 procedures performed between 2009 and 2015, and organized in five groups of age for analysis. Differences among them were analyzed by chi squared and ANOVA...

Being a fast and safe method in the hands of well trained professionals in both prehospital and intrahospital care, Cricothyrotomy has been broadly recommended as the initial surgical airway in the scenario "can't intubate, can't ventilate", and is particularly useful when the obstruction level is above or at the glottis. Its prolonged permanence, however, is an endless source of controversy. In this review we evaluate the complications of cricothyrotomy and the need of its routine conversion to tracheotomy through a search on PubMed, LILACS and SciELO electronic databases with no restriction to the year or language of the publication...

Postintubation tracheal stenosis is a very important clinical situation. It is estimated to occur in approximately 5% to 20% of intubated or tracheostomized patients. However, 1% also suffers severe respiratory dysfunction. We report the case of a 45-year old patient who required surgery under general anesthesia (first intubation experience) after suffering severe coronary disease. The patient was admitted to the intensive care unit, connected to maintained mechanical ventilation for 9 days when he was weaned and extubated...

UNLABELLED: Four-quadrant cricoid division in laryngotracheal reconstruction is indicated in case of very tight laryngotracheal stenosis. The principle of this operation is to section the anterior, posterior and lateral walls of the cricoid and to increase the diameter of the laryngeal lumen by interposition of a cartilaginous graft in the anterior and/or posterior cricoid wall. MATERIAL AND METHODS: From 1991 to 2001, 25 children underwent a laryngotracheoplasty with four-quadrant cricoid division...

This is a case report of a patient with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), who initially presented with a corneal perforation. In addition to the eye involvement, the pauciimmune necrotizing glomerulonephritis with crescent formation, E.N.T. and pulmonary involvement were diagnosed. The patient also suffered from the acute myocardial infarction, most likely due to coronal arteritis. In addition to the coronal ischaemia she also had vasculitis of the aortic valve due to the WG. Another rare complication was the massive intestinal bleeding...
