    Abstract

    Four patients with bilateral vocal cord fixation due to isolated posterior glottic stenosis that developed following endotracheal intubation are presented. Two patients had previously undergone multiple endoscopic surgical procedures without obtaining a satisfactory airway. All four were treated by posterior cricoid split and costal cartilage interposition and were successfully decannulated. The assessment of vocal cord immobility following endotracheal intubation is presented and the surgical management of posterior glottic stenosis discussed.
