Resumen

PINILLA GONZALEZ, Rafael  y  VICENTE DE LA CRUZ, Asbel. Estenosis traqueal: Estudio preliminar. Rev Cubana Cir [online]. 2000, vol.39, n.3, pp.188-194. ISSN 0034-7493.

A retrospective and descriptive study was conducted by using the medical histories of 5 patients with tracheal stenosis, mostly as a result of prolongued intubation. Aspects connected with the diagnosis, treatment and complications were taken into account. It was observed a predominance of females and an average age of 44.6. Prolongued intubation of different origin was the cause of stenosis in 4 of the 5 patients, whereas in the other it occurred after the reparation of the tracheal and athrogenous lesion. The installation of stenosis took place between 8 days and 3 months. Lineal tomography in 3 patients and anteroposterior and lateral simple X-ray of the trachea in 2 confirmed the diagnosis. Preoperative tracheobronchial endoscopy was useful to characterize stenosis. All patients underwent surgical treatment with resection of the stenotic area by posterior terminoterminal anastomosis and fixation of the neck in flexion during 8 days as an average. 2 patients that had granulomas at the level of the suture line were treated with nuclear vacuolization. No mortality was reported in the studied sample
