Resorbable Device for Costal Cartilage Graft Fixation in the Surgical Treatment of High Tracheal Stenosis


Abstract:
Tracheal stenosis is a condition where the trachea narrows or becomes constricted as a result of a laryngotracheal trauma, prolonged tracheal intubation, high tracheostomy or systemic diseases.A possible treatment for tracheal stenosis is tracheal reconstruction with costal cartilage grafts that are implanted into the anterior tracheal wall. In order to secure the graft cartilage to the tracheal sidewalls we can use differnt synthetic resorbable materials, such as polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid, that allow anchoring of the costal cartilage to the tracheal wall. The aim of this paper is to present a fixation device for fixing the cartilage graft on the tracheal side walls. This device is designed using a synthetic resorbable material and allows anchoring of the costal cartilage to the tracheal wall using microscrews made of resorbable material.


Keywords:
