CUESTAS, Giselle et al. Treatment of acquired laryngeal stenosis in pediatrics: Case series. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2013, vol.111, n.6. ISSN 0325-0075.

Subglottic stenosis is one of the most common causes of upper airway obstruction in children. Even though it may have a congenital origin, most of them are acquired stenosis. This condition should be suspected in any child with a history of intubation, instrumentation or trauma of the airway that is having diffculty breathing. The diagnosis is suspected by clinical, history and cervical radiograph, and is confrmed by endoscopic examination. Among others factors the treatment depends on the stenosis degree. We describe our experience with 6 patients with post-intubation subglottic stenosis treated surgically with expansion technique.

Keywords : subglottic stenosis; children; endotracheal intubation; surgical treatment.
