Abstract

Traditional methods of managing postintubation subglottic stenosis include repeated dilation and various surgical procedures. None gives good results with any frequency. Encouraged by reported success with intralesional steroid injections for esophageal stricture, we successfully treated a patient with subglottic stenosis using steroid injections and dilations after a program of dilations alone had resulted in alarming clinical deterioration. The method merits further consideration. © 1973, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons. All rights reserved.
