Cardiac surgery patients were randomized to receive either a standard endotracheal tube or the Hi-Lo Evac ™ tube to facilitate CASS, also known as subglottic secretions drainage (SSD).
Our Airway Center is unique in that it offers children with complex airway problems, such as subglottic stenosis or chronic tracheotomy, a comprehensive evaluation in a single visit.
When the scarring from subglottic stenosis is limited to the back part of the vocal cords (inter-arytenoid region), it is called posterior glottic stenosis.
Current Airway Center research projects include study of the outcomes of standard reconstructive approaches, the genetics of congenital airway lesions, the role of growth factors with subglottic stenosis and airway healing, voice evaluation in children after laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR), and evaluation of outcomes of congenital versus acquired airway lesions.
Under the direction of Dr. Ian Jacobs, the team sees a variety of conditions including subglottic stenosis, congenital airway disorders and swallowing disorders.
Enlarge+Subglottic hemangiomas are abnormal growths of blood vessels in the subglottic part of the airway, below the vocal cords.
Common symptoms of subglottic hemangiomas include:
Are there complications of subglottic hemangiomas?
Subglottic hemangiomas often cause a narrowing of the airway in the subglottic area (below the vocal cords) as they grow.
Most patients with severe subglottic stenosis will be dependent on a tracheotomy ( "trach") tube.
