Abstract

Tracheal stenosis is more frequent as a result of wide-spread use of endotracheal intubation and tracheostomy. Resection and tracheal reconstruction remain the treatment of choice in benign tracheal stenosis. To report our experience in Basra and to identify the result of anastomosis after tracheal resection and management of those patients preoperatively and postoperatively. A descriptive study of sixteen patients (aged 11–28 years, 10 male and 6 female) with tracheal stenosis who underwent tracheal resection and reconstruction in Basrah thoracic unit (Basra teaching hospital) from January 2008 to January 2011. The result was excellent in 62.5%, good in 25%, and satisfactory in 12.5%. Postoperative complication occurred in 25% and treated successfully with no mortality. Follow-up was every 3 months for an average of 3.6 years. Resection and tracheal reconstruction is the treatment of choice in benign tracheal stenosis and achieved excellent results in management of the patients.
