Tumour-Induced Intraluminal Stenoses of the Cervical Trachea — Tumour Excision and Tracheoplasty
Stenoses of the subglottic or cervical trachea resulting from tumours are extremely dangerous, since they can lead rapidly to life-threatening situations as a consequence of bleeding or increasing dyspnoea. During the last 5 years, we have operated on three children with such conditions, two of whom had benign tumours and one, a sarcoma. Because of the localization and the very low incidence of tracheal tumours in childhood there is still some reserve, since such primary problems as lesions of the recurrent nerve and secondary cicatricial stenoses bring further problems in their train.
