Özet

Introduction: Subglottic cysts (SGCs) are increasingly recognized as a cause of upper airway obstruction in previously intubated infants. Endoscopic marsupialization with cold steel instruments or CO2 laser has been reported to be the standardised treatment method for SGCs. SGC case series of 9 patients who were treated with endoscopic marsupialization with cold steel instruments or CO2 laser and mechanical decompression with balloon dilatation are presented.
