Tracheal stenosis is the narrowing of the trachea, commonly known as the windpipe, which transports air to the lungs. This is a very rare condition, affecting 1 out of 200,000 people every year. It usually develops in adults, particularly those who suffer from chronic inflammatory diseases that affect the pulmonary function. It can also develop as a result of previous tracheal surgery. There are two main types of pulmonary stenosis:
Laryngeal stenosis is thought to be more common than pulmonary stenosis. The main manifestation of tracheal stenosis is ulceration of the trachea, an inability to breathe fully and pain in the lungs. In some cases, scar tissue can develop as well. The most common cause of tracheal stenosis is pulmonary trauma, which can be either internal or external. Internal trauma includes previous surgery on the trachea and irradiation and tracheal burns. External trauma includes trauma of the neck or prolonged intubation.
In people with tracheal stenosis, dyspnea can develop. Dyspnea is breathlessness that can last several moments and may be diagnosed if someone is often unable to breathe properly even though they are not physically exerting themselves.
