Abstract: Mucociliary clearance is an important cleaning system of the bronchial tree. The complex transport system reacts sensitively to medicinal stimuli and inhaled substances. A disturbance causes secretion retention which encourages the development of acute and chronic pulmonary diseases. It is not yet known in which way sectional resection of the central airway effects mucociliary clearance. A large number of the surgical failures are attributable to septic complications in the area of the anastomosis. In order to… Show more

“…Approximating the ends of the anastomosis needs care because diastasis between the cartilages results in scar tissue that may narrow the tracheal lumen. 11 Santoli and McKeown 12 reported good long-term results after partial resection and anastomosis with nonabsorbable suture in a child with congenital tracheal aplasia. This study demonstrated that positive results can be obtained with a good surgical technique, regardless of the type of suture material.…”
