Subglottic stenosis

 

Subglottic stenosis refers to the block at one or both sides of the lower part of glottis, which is caused mainly by abnormal development of glottis or external physical injury.

 

Causes

 

Major causes for subglottic stenosis include:

• Congenital factors: unexplained cartilaginous or membranous subglottic stenosis or congenital space occupying lesions; autoimmune, gastroesophageal reflux, laryngotracheal infection are also potential causes.

• Traumatic agents: tracheal intubation injury, laryngotracheal injury and iatrogenic injury.  

 

Diagnosis

 

The soft-laryngotracheal and hard-laryngotracheal endoscopic examinations are commonly regarded as the most reliable techniques for the diagnosis of subglottic stenosis, which are usually conducted under general anesthesia. During the diagnosis procedure, a tracheal cannula or a bronchoscope is applied to measure the area of the stenosis, and to see if there is any other stenosis and presence of airway deformity.

 

Surgical solution

 

Among different techniques concering the surgical treatment for subglottic stenosis, the low temperature plasma RF ablation has been clinically proved to be a preferable one, for such novel technique renders relevant surgery safer, more efficient, and minimally invasive.
