One hundred eight consecutive patients with pediatric laryngotracheal stenosis requiring airway reconstruction over a 10-year period were reviewed.
Ninety (83%) of the patients were decannulated.
Over three quarters of the decannulations took place within 20 months of primary reconstruction.
More than half of the patients (47, or 52%) had persistent tracheocutaneous fistulae after decannulation, which required elective closure.
The likelihood of a persisting tracheocutaneous fistula is directly related to duration of cannulation.
