    Tracheomalacia is exaggeration of the physiologic expiratory reduction in the antero-posterior diameter of the trachea causing tracheal obstruction, which results in respiratory embarrassment. This rarely documented problem occurs following surgery for large and long-standing goitres, primary...

Upper airway surgical procedures increase the incidence of laryngospasm due to airway blood and secretions. The overall incidence of laryngospasm during cleft lip and palate repair...

Here, we report such a case of sudden onset goitre (malignant) presenting as airway obstruction due to...

    A 66-year-old man presented with acute respiratory distress due to a tracheal tumor involving the posterior wall of the upper trachea, with nearly complete airway obstruction. Partial debulking of the tumor's endoluminal component, via rigid bronchoscopy and yttrium-aluminum-perovskite laser,...

    Background: Upper airway compromise due to tracheobronchial stenosis commonly occurs in patients with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG). There is at present no consensus on the optimal management of this life threatening condition. Objective: To assess the results of laryngo-tracheobronchoscopy,...

    Congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS) is the obstruction of the fetal upper airways, which may be partial or complete. It is usually incompatible with life. Prenatal recognition of the disease is quite important due to the recently described management options. We report here two...

    Tracheostomy is a life saving surgical procedure performed to maintain upper airway ventilation. The indications include providing relief of upper airway obstruction, to replace endotracheal intubation in patients needing prolonged assisted ventilation, protection of tracheobronchial tree and...

    Background: The saw-tooth sign was first described by Sanders et al in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome as one cause of extrathoracic central airway obstruction. The mechanism of the saw-tooth sign has not been conclusively clarified. The sign has also been described in various...
