Laryngotracheal stenosis and reconstruction
The patency of the larynx and the trachea is sometimes compromised acutely with a direct threat of suffocation or asphyxia. Of old this occurred quite often as a consequence of diphteria and other infectious diseases or as a result of various kinds of exogenous traumata. Infectious diseases for instance, epiglottitis are still among us but are usually handled efficiently by medication and occasionally by intubation.
