BOGLIONE, Mariano et al. Surgical treatment of tracheal stenosis in pediatrics. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2010, vol.108, n.2, pp.148-152. ISSN 0325-0075.

Twenty patients with tracheal stenosis were surgically treated between July 2005 and May 2008; ten patients had a congenital stenosis and ten an acquired one. Global survival was 85%. Three patients died: 1 with acquired stenosis and 2 with congenital stenosis. From 17 alive patients, 15 remain asymptomatic; 2 patients operated on due to congenital stenosis, are under continuous follow-up (both with stents placed in the trachea). Surgical treatment of acquired stenosis presents less severe complications, requires less ventilatory support and hospital stay. Conversely, congenital stenosis often requires more than one procedure to control the disease, and presents a higher mortality rate.
