There are several treatments for children with laryngotracheal stenosis, including:
- Airway reconstructions with grafts and stents, using state-of-the-art surgical techniques.
- Dilation of the airway using balloons and other means. These procedures manipulate narrowed soft tissue areas to enlarge the airway.
- Scar resections from the airway with open and endoscopic surgery. Microsurgical techniques, sometimes with the use of lasers, can remove scar tissue and improve breathing.
- Tracheostomy, a procedure where a tube is placed through the neck into the windpipe to stabilize breathing until the condition can be permanently corrected.
