Treatment of subglottic stenosis

The timing of surgery is dictated by severity of the subglottic stenosis. Surgical intervention may be avoided if periods of airway obstruction are rare and may be treated with anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictive agents, such as oral, intravenous, or inhaled steroids and inhaled epinephrine. For mild or granular SGS, success with serial endoscopic dilation with or without steroid injections has been reported. Because most cases of congenital stenosis are cartilaginous, dilatation or laser surgery are not uniformly effective. Anterior laryngotracheal decompression (cricoid split) or reconstruction with cartilage grafting usually avoids a trachestomy.
