Advances in medical technology have dramatically
improved one’s chances of survival in a number of
significant medical illnesses. Failed treatment of
acute trauma to trachea, complication of endotracheal
intubation and tracheostomy tubes are the common
causes of tracheal stenosis. Tracheal stenosis can be
treated by LASER ablation, dilatation, endoscopic
stenting1, T-Tube, segmental resection and
reconstruction2. Repair of tracheal injuried ends with
placing of a stent through open neck incision after
acute tracheal injury in order to prevent tracheal
stenosis in future was a unique experience.
