Tracheal intubation is the most common cause of Tracheal stenosis. The treatment of trachea stenosis vary according to site or size of tracheal stenosis. Thirty six age old man was transferred our hospital for evaluation of dyspnea. Subglottic stenosis was shown on bronchoscopy & chest computerized tomography(CT) scan of neck. Balloon dilatation was performed and then patient breathed at ease. Tracheal resection and end-to-end anastomosis was applied to repetitive tracheal stenosis. Balloon dilatation before surgical management makes better respiratory difficulty. We report succesful application of surgical management after balloon dilatation in repetitive tracheal stenosis patient. We will suggest that the balloon dilatation improve symptoms before tracheal resection and end-to-end anastomosis or stent, if sugery or stent insertion are not appliable due to poor status of patient.
Key Words: Tracheal stenosis; Surgery; Balloon dilatation
