Pediatric airway stenosis challenges the treating surgeon, from the initial evaluation and decision-making process to the final postoperative care and follow-up setting. As our approach to these cases evolves, we must critically evaluate our outcomes in reference to our stated goals. We describe our process in treating this population and critically examine our outcome data from 1990 to the present. Emphasis is placed on selection of procedure and postoperative management.
