Abstract
The aim of this study was to introduce a new surgical technique for the correction of congenital laryngeal atresia. A female baby had laryngeal atresia at birth and received emergency tracheostomy at another hospital. The baby visited our hospital at 7 months of age for corrective surgery of airway obstruction. We used a new surgical technique for reconstruction of her airway, the slide thyrocricotracheoplasty, which was a modification of slide tracheoplasty and anterior cricoid split. The extubation was successful at the postoperative fifth day, and the baby was discharged on the 33rd day after operation. The serial follow-up bronchoscopy on the fourth and 18th postoperative months revealed good healing and normal growth of tissue at operation site without stenosis and granulation. Slide thyrocricotracheoplasty produced a desirable result and offered the same advantages as slide tracheoplasty. The authors believe that this technique offers an efficient surgical procedure for the single-staged correction of congenital laryngeal atresia.
