Subglottic stenosis newborn
my baby was born with TOFS (OA) he was intubated when he had his repair when he was a day old. he was extubated at ten days old an at 5 weeks old he then had a trachestomy through his intubation (subglottic stenosis) i would like to know the success rates of trachestomy removal?
It is impossible to give a definitive answer. It depends to a large degree on the severity of the stenosis as well as the experience of the surgeon.
