Abstract: Stent placement may induce granulation tissue, occlude the stent lumen, and exacerbate respiratory symptoms. Microdebrider was designed to treat laryngeal papillomas and airway stenosis. However, little research exists on the management of airway stenosis following airway stenting with microdebrider. This study describes two cases of glottic stenosis caused by airway stenting successfully treated with mibrodebrider.

    Meyer -Rokitansky- Kuster -Hauser syndrome is associated with the congenital absence of uterus and vagina. In this condition a neovagina is created with modified Mc Indoe's method. The tissues surrounding the neovagina are pushed aside during dissection and these tissues will attempt to move...
