Subglottic Stenosis

Abstract

A computerized Ovid search of MEDLINE 1966–November 2003 was performed. First, the subject heading “laryngostenosis” was exploded and combined with all articles containing the keyword “subglottic stenosis”. Second, the terms “treatment outcome”, “tracheotomy”, and “tracheostomy” were exploded and combined with all articles containing the keywords “outcome” or “decannulation”. Third, articles with the keyword “child”, “infant”, or “pediatric” and those obtained by exploding “pediatrics” were combined. These three groups were then cross-referenced, yielding 338 articles. We then reviewed these reports, as well as the references of any summary articles obtained in order to obtain all relevant references. For inclusion criteria, we required the following: 1) a distinct population of children ≤19 years old with subglottic stenosis, 2) management with single-staged laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR), preferably in comparison to double-staged LTR, and 3) outcome measures of decannulation and/or need for subsequent salvage procedures.

Keywords

Tracheal Stenosis Subglottic Stenosis Laryngotracheal Stenosis Uncontrolled Case Series Subsequent Salvage 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
