Abstract

Neonatal subglottic stenosis still remains a substantial challenge for paediatric ENT surgeons. Herein, we present a case of a single stage laryngotracheal reconstruction for a glottic-subglottic stenosis in an 18-week-old, 7.2 kg infant with DiGeorge syndrome. Our surgical approach was compared with those reported in the literature. Paediatric airway surgery should be tailored to individual patients according to age, weight, comorbidities and family collaboration, with the ultimate objective to minimise the invasiveness of the procedure.
