Tracheomalacia

Tracheomalacia

Tracheomalacia is basically a problem with the cartilaginous framework of the trachea. It is characterized by softening of the tracheal cartilage. The normal dilation and narrowing of the tracheal cartilaginous rings during respiration is exacerbated in this condition, leading to tracheal collapse. Congenital, extrinsic and acquired tracheomalacia are its 3 types. Common symptoms include stridor and a laryngeal crow. Investigations include bronchoscopy and respiratory function tests. Surgical management is required for severe cases. It includes tracheal stenting, tracheostomy, aortopexy and tracheopexy.
