The subglottic laryngotracheal stenotic injuries following intubation are more frequent every day. 32 patients who were operated on due to this complication in our service between December, 1985, and April, 1997, including both, were studied. 75.2 % of them were under 40 years old and the commonest causes of intubation were polytraumas and the asthmatic status. The laryngotracheal resection was the mest used technique (78. 8 %) followed by laryngotracheal fissure and the placing of Montgomery´s T-prosthesis. Large resections were performed in 65.3 % of the patients. The application of these techniques showed good final results in 93. 6 % of the cases. There was a morbidity of 28. 1 % and a mortality of 3.1 %
