abstract

  • Bilateral vocal fold immobility (BVFI) can be divided into bilateral vocal fold paralysis and cricoarytenoid joint fixation, which can be accompanied with laryngeal stenosis. In children with BVFI, requiring a tracheostomy, the authors preference, to achieve decannulation, is to perform an endoscopic posterior cricoid split with rib grafting after the age of 1.
