Abstract

Laryngotracheal cleft (LTC) is a rare congenital anomaly. Severe forms of LTC are usually treated surgically using extracorporeal circulation. Despite tremendous improvement of surgical techniques, postoperative complications are still frequent. We report a comprehensive description of an endoscopic approach to diagnosis, surgical repair and endoscopic treatment of complications after correction in a type IV LTC. © 2013 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
