  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Montgomery's silicone T-tube was employed for the treatment of laryngeal stenosis among three patients. One patient was affected with thoracic stenosis while, the other two with tracheal stenosis. Decanulation among these patients were completely successful. The duration of the silicone tube insertion among the three patients was 12 days, 2 months and 9 months respectively. During this period the patients were able to breathe through the nose and carry on conversation without any hidrance whatsoever. Two patients were allowed to live at home. No obstruction in the breathing passage was seen in any of the patients. And moreover, there was no obstruction seen within the tubes when they were decanulated.

 We believe that silicone T-tube is the first choice to be made in the treatment of laryngeal stenosis.
