Abstract

Impacted pediatric tracheobronchial thrombus is an uncommon diagnosis. There are no clearly proven therapeutic options for airway casts due to a similar process, plastic bronchitis. Cryotherapy, specifically cryoextraction, has shown potential as a therapeutic option in adults with tracheobronchial thrombus and cast. We describe the novel application of this method in a complex pediatric patient.
