To evaluate the management, complications of treatment and outcomes of postintubation tracheal stenosis (PITS).
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Annals of thoracic surgery
Primary tracheal resection in appropriately selected patients with tracheal stenosis achieves >90% success rate. Risk factors for complications have been identified, making some patients high risk for...
Slide tracheoplasty is the preferred approach for treating long-segment congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS). However, little research has been conducted on the tracheobronchial anatomy before and after...
Postintubation stenosis is a frequent complication of long-term endotracheal anesthesia. In the last few decades, its incidence showed an increasing tendency particularly among children and premature ...
Complete tracheal ring deformity (CTRD) is a rare congenital abnormality of unknown etiology characterized by circumferentially continuous or nearly-continuous cartilaginous tracheal rings, variable d...
Cervical stenosis of the trachea caused by tracheotomy, tumor or without defined reason (idiopathic) can be treated by resection and anastomosis with good early and long-term results. Involvement o...
tracheal stenosis is the result of abnormal wound-healing processes leading to hypertrophic scar formation and obstruction of the airway lumen by excess granulation tissue. This process is...
It is not clearly understood what causes tracheobronchomalacia (weakening of the windpipe and airways) or tracheal stenosis (narrowing of the windpipe). We plan to take biopsies (small pi...
This is a phase I study to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of a novel tracheal replacement therapy using cadaveric de-cellularised tracheal scaffold and patients' own mesenc...
The trial evaluates the safety and efficacy of the olfactory mucosa-derived mesenchymal stem cells based therapy for the patients with chronic laryngeal and tracheal stenosis
The purpose of the study is to prospectively assess the use of a modified tracheal balloon dilator in children (
A pathological narrowing of the TRACHEA.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA. This results in a floppy tracheal wall making patency difficult to maintain. It is characterized by wheezing and difficult breathing.
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
A set of BACTERIAL ADHESINS and TOXINS, BIOLOGICAL produced by BORDETELLA organisms that determine the pathogenesis of BORDETELLA INFECTIONS, such as WHOOPING COUGH. They include filamentous hemagglutinin; FIMBRIAE PROTEINS; pertactin; PERTUSSIS TOXIN; ADENYLATE CYCLASE TOXIN; dermonecrotic toxin; tracheal cytotoxin; Bordetella LIPOPOLYSACCHARIDES; and tracheal colonization factor.
