Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Balci MK, Kutlu CA. Pericardial Patch Tracheoplasty for Relapsing Polychondritis. March 2019. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.7863452.

The authors present the bronchoscopic findings from a 58-year-old woman who was diagnosed with relapsing polychondritis. This video shows the results of a patch tracheoplasty, four years after the operation. The trachea and upper airways seemed normal, but the orifices of both main bronchi were significantly narrowed.
