Developmental or acquired stricture or narrowing of the LARYNX. Symptoms of respiratory difficulty depend on the degree of laryngeal narrowing.

Drugs and Biologics

Drugs and Important Biological Agents (IBA) related to Laryngostenosis:
1. Anti-Bacterial Agents (Antibiotics)IBA
07/01/1983 - "The efficacy of a combination of systemic antibiotics and a steroid in the prevention of acquired subglottic stenosis (ASGS) was evaluated employing a previously developed canine animal model. "
12/01/2005 - "The clinical relevant factors causing laryngeal stenosis were included as follows: age, sex, TNM stage, tumor site, extension of thyroid cartilage defect, extension of larynx parenchyma defect, reconstruction method, laryngeal dilator, duration of using antibiotics, postoperative radiotherapy, lung infection, gastroesophageal reflux, diabetes. "
11/01/1994 - "Important points to consider during this process are: a formal tracheostomy rather than a tracheotomy; other potential sites of obstruction than the laryngeal stenosis; gastroesophageal reflux; prevention and control of infection and the use of prophylactic antibiotics; method and type of suture material; stenting; movement and method of feeding. "
07/01/1983 - "Antibiotics and steroids in the treatment of acquired subglottic stenosis. "
12/01/1986 - "It can be concluded that early periodic dilatation and granulation removal in the acutely injured subglottis is effective in prevention of severe stenosis, late periodic dilatations in chronic subglottic stenosis are not helpful in further alleviation of obstruction, the concomitant use of antibiotics and systemic steroids did not appreciably prevent or alter the development of subglottic stenosis, and the concomitant use of intralesional steroids appeared to be of benefit in the management of chronic acquired subglottic stenosis."
