Otolaryngologic Clinics of North America
A surgeon facing the problem of a child with subglottic stenosis currently has a wide range of surgical options. Cricotracheal resection is the preferred option for grade IV and severe grade III stenoses that are clear of the vocal cords. Laryngotracheal reconstruction as a less extensive procedure is preferred for some grade II and less severe grade III stenoses. Stenosis close to the vocal cords remains a challenge and can be treated by extended partial cricotracheal resection. Pediatric surgeons and otolaryngologists should learn carefully the technique of partial cricotracheal resection for use in infants and children to achieve better results than with laryngotracheal reconstructions.
