Repair of a complete glottic-subglottic stenosis with a fibular osseocutaneous free flap.
Reconstruction of extensive laryngotracheal stenosis remains a formidable challenge. The ideal reconstructive technique has not been found because of the variability in the complexity and degree of laryngotracheal stenosis and the challenge of wound healing in a contaminated tubular structure. The application of microvascular free-tissue transfer in laryngotracheal reconstruction is limited. We used a fibula osseocutaneous revascularized flap for reconstruction of a complex laryngotracheal stenosis. The clinical course, long-term follow-up, and potential advantages and disadvantages are discussed.
