Fifty-two patients from seven weeks to 15 years of age were treated for congenital (six patients) or acquired (46 patients) tracheal lesions. Twenty underwent tracheal resection and reconstruction: congenital stenosis 3 (5 to 9 yr), postintubation stenosis 9 (11 to 15 yr), TEF 1 (15 yr), posttraumatic 2 (9 to 15 yr) idiopathic 1 (14 yr) and primary tumors 4 (8 to 15 yr). There were two carinal resections. There were two deaths and two postoperative stenoses, one of which was corrected later, giving 17 final good results. Thirty-two patients were treated nonoperatively.
