Abstract

Objective: To highlight the incidence of subglottic stenosis (SGS) as a complication of surgery for congenital heart disease and the role of single- stage laryngotracheoplasty in treating this complication. Design: Retrospective case series. Setting: University-based referral center specializing in surgery for congenital heart disease and complex airway problem management. Intervention: Laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR). Main outcome measure: successful airway expansion. Results: At last follow-up, 87.5% (7 of 8) of patients remain free of obstructive airway symptoms. Conclusion: SGS can complicate surgery for congenital heart disease in children. Single-stage LTR is an effective treatment modality for this problem.
