Abstract

Slide tracheoplasty can be applied successfully to all types of long segment congenital tracheal stenosis. In case of short segment tracheal stenosis, direct resection and anastomosis is often preferred. We report a case illustrating a new side benefit of the slide tracheoplasty in a patient presenting a relatively short hypoplastic tracheal segment coexisting with tracheomalacia after EA with TEF repair.
