Category: CHRONIC STENOSIS OF THE LARYNX AND TRACHEA
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery
The chief traumatic factors in chronic laryngeal stenosis
are: (a) prolonged presence of a foreign body in the larynx (b)
unskilled attempts at intubation and the wearing of poorly fitting
intubation tubes; (c) a faulty tracheotomy; (d) a badly fitting
cannula; (e) war injuries; (f) attempted suicide; (g) attempted
homicide; (h) neglect of cleanliness and care of either intubation
tubes or tracheotomic cannulae allowing incrustation and roughening
which traumatize the tissues at each movement of the ever-moving
larynx and trachea.
