Stent placement may induce granulation tissue, occlude the stent lumen, and exacerbate respiratory symptoms. Microdebrider was designed to treat laryngeal papillomas and airway stenosis. However, little research exists on the management of airway stenosis following airway stenting with microdebrider. This study describes two cases of glottic stenosis caused by airway stenting successfully treated with mibrodebrider. © 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
