Figure 3: Flexible video bronchoscopic images: (a) Top row left showing mid-tracheal stenosis. The left and right walls appear to be web-like and granulation-like tissue, respectively, (b) top row right – postrigid bronchoscopy and “release” of the tracheal web. The original stenotic lumen is seen on the other side of the fibrous band, (c) middle row left – fibrous band dissection by electrosurgical knife, (d) middle row right – luminal patency achieved, (e) bottom row left – lumen patent at 2 weeks, and (f) bottom row right – recurrence of stenosis at 9 months
