An old but effective method could provide good results for controlling airway in patients with critical tracheal stenosis.
Managing the airway of patients with critical tracheal stenosis remains a formidable challenge to surgeons and anesthesiologists.
Various methods for controlling the airway have been established to solve this problem.
This study describes the critical tracheal stenosis is managed by dilating and coring technique under direct vision with a rigid bronchoscope.
Rigid bronchoscopy is well known as the conventional means of implementing bronchotherapeutic procedures but the role of rigid bronchoscope in controlling central airway stenosis was not widely employed by medical physicians.
