Long-segment tracheal stenosis with complete tracheal rings is a severe and life-threatening problem in small children. Slide tracheoplasty has largely become the treatment of choice for these patients [1-4]. Its use after the failure of other techniques has not been previously reported. We describe a 3-year-old child who underwent a rescue slide tracheoplasty for re-stenosis after initial patch tracheoplasty for long-segment tracheal stenosis and pulmonary artery sling.
