Depending on the symptom severity, patients can be managed conservatively or may undergo surgery, most commonly a tracheoplasty
In addition, tracheoplasty
was performed in two patients among all the 40 cases underwent surgical management.
In spite of the technical challenges related to the airway and anesthesia, surgical interventions including, staged tracheoplasty
, aortopexy, tracheopexy, tracheobronchoplasty, tracheal suspension, extrinsic tracheal neo-rings and intraluminal tracheal splints have been used successfully3.
Alkathine shell, an innovative way of neck flexion after tracheoplasty
Technique, utility, and safety of awake tracheoplasty
using combined laser and balloon dilation.
16) These techniques include tracheal resection, pericardial tracheoplasty
, cartilage tracheoplasty
, slide tracheoplasty
, tracheal homograft, and tracheal autograft.
The following were considered as endoscopic therapeutic procedures: transbronchial needle aspiration, diode laser photocoagulation of tracheal or bronchial lesions, bronchoplasty and pneumatic tracheoplasty
, bronchial and tracheal stenting.
These range from dilatation of the stenotic segment in combination with balloon tracheoplasty
and laser resection, to extensive procedures such as tracheoplasty
using cartilage grafts and primary resection and end-to-end anastomosis (6,7).
Wound healing modulators in a tracheoplasty
Prof Elliott, Great Ormond Street's director of cardiothoracic surgery, offered to perform a slide tracheoplasty
A permanent tracheostoma was created with tracheoplasty
and airway reconstruction and insertion of an 18-French extended Silastic tracheostomy tube (T tube).
Few instances of successful laser tracheoplasty
to prevent the collapse of posterior membrane of trachea have been reported .
