Complications of tracheal stent placement in birds may include tracheitis and tracheomalacia
and/or large airway stenosis may develop as sequelae.
Other consortia-inspired devices in the works include a stent for the treatment of tracheomalacia
, a weakness and narrowing of the trachea (see sidebar on page 62); and the Remotoscope, a clip-on attachment to a smartphone that allows remote diagnosis of otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear).
24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International children's charity Kids Wish Network recognized its partners for their help to send Ridgeville teenager Haley, who suffers from Lung Disease, Down Syndrome and Tracheomalacia

These include cleft palate, orofacial malformations, atlanto-axial subluxation, subglottic stenosis and tracheomalacia
He was diagnosed with bronchial malacia and tracheomalacia
so he had a tracheostomy fitted and a gastro tube for feeding.
Other causes of early suprastomal stenosis are granulation tissue formation, subglottic mucosal injury and, rarely, pre-existing tracheal abnormalities such as tracheomalacia
These authors disregard the fact that apnea is a feature of the condition known as an apparent life threatening event (ALTE), which can be caused by prematurity, gastroesophageal reflux, cardiac arrhthymia, laryngomalacia, tracheomalacia
, infection, metabolic disorders, seizure, and other conditions.

Seven months after completion of treatment, he was found to have diffuse anterior tracheal necrosis that extended to the left lateral wall down to the carina and resulted in severe tracheomalacia
and dynamic airway compromise.
