    Although ventilatory support can be life-saving, it also has adverse effects, including postintubation tracheal stenosis caused by damage to the larynx and trachea. Cardiopulmonary bypass is generally not used for the surgical management of tracheal stenosis; however, we have found that the use...

    Post-intubation tracheal stenosis is usually caused by pressure necrosis at the cuff. Although the best results are obtained by tracheal reconstruction, not all patients are able to undergo this operation for either medical or personal reasons. A 67-year-old male was admitted to our hospital...

    The objective of this study is to evaluate the results of circumferential tracheal and cricotracheal resection with primary anastomosis for the treatment of post-intubation tracheal and cricotracheal stenosis. This is a retrospective analytical study. A total number of 24 patients were included...

    Although the incidence of post-intubation tracheal stenosis has markedly decreased with the advent of large volume, low pressure endotracheal tube cuffs, it still occurs, commonly in patients after prolonged intubation. We report a case of tracheal stenosis that developed after a brief period of...

    To study the effectiveness of silicone implants in the treatment of cicatricial stenosis of the trachea. We examined 123 patients aged from 18 to 64 years old. In most patients (101; 82.1%) there was a post-intubation or post-tracheostomy origin of cicatricial stenosis. Prosthesis was used in...
