Abstract

Laryngotracheal stenosis is abnormal narrowing of airway which may be congenital or acquire. Laryngotracheal stenosis in children mostly comprised of the acquired form whereby endotracheal intubation is the commonest etiology. The mainstay of treatment remains a challenge to many otorhinolaryngologists. Four pediatric patients aged less than 13 years underwent balloon dilatation for acquired laryngotracheal stenosis in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre from 2000 to 2016. Mean follow up duration was 18 months. All patients showed positive early outcomes whereby tracheostomy was successfully decannulated and open surgery was avoided. We conclude that endoscopic balloon dilatation is useful in acquired pediatric laryngotracheal stenosis.
