    Abstract: Objective: Congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) is rare. When it presents early in life, its management can be challenging. Of the surgical techniques that have been devised to correct long-segment CTS, slide tracheoplasty (ST) appears to be superior. We present our 7-year-experience of...
