Laryngotracheoplasty

Laryngotracheoplasty is a surgery to expand and repair an airway using pieces of cartilage (grafts) taken from your child’s rib, ear, or thyroid (depending on how much cartilage is needed). It is used to treat tracheal stenosis or subglottic stenosis. It can be conducted in one step or two, depending on whether a temporary tracheostomy (an opening in through the neck into the trachea) is required. The success rates for laryngotracheoplasty is around 94.6%.

About Laryngotracheoplasty

Laryngotracheplasty is used to treat tracheal stenosis or subglottic stenosis. It can be conducted in one step or two, depending on whether a temporary tracheostomy (an opening in through the neck into the trachea) is required.The procedure aims to improve breathing and alleviate symptoms such as stridor (noisy breathing) and respiratory distress. It is important to consult with an otolaryngologist or a specialist in airway surgery to determine eligibility and discuss the specific details and potential risks associated with laryngotracheoplasty.

Procedure of Laryngotracheoplasty

  • Pre-operative Evaluation: Before the surgery, a comprehensive evaluation is performed to assess the extent and location of the airway narrowing or collapse.
  • Anesthesia: On the day of the surgery, anesthesia is administered to ensure your comfort and pain management during the procedure.
  • Airway Reconstruction: The surgeon makes incisions in the affected area of the larynx and trachea. Grafts or implants are carefully placed to provide structural support and restore proper airflow.
  • Suture Closure: Once the grafts or implants are in place, the incisions are closed with sutures to secure the reconstructed airway.
  • Post-operative Care: After the surgery, you will be monitored in the hospital to ensure a smooth recovery. Medications for pain management and respiratory support may be provided. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and adjust any necessary treatments.
