Abstract

Choanal atresia is a relatively rare congenital anomaly with an incidence of close to 1 in 10,000 births. The diagnosis can be strongly suspected clinically, but needs to be confirmed with flexible laryngoscopy or CT scans. CT scans of the axial plane are required prior to embarking on surgical correction. Patients with bilateral choanal atresia likely will require a tracheotomy at birth until they have gained enough weight to enable the repair. Better instrumentation has made the transnasal repair the most popular repair. The method of postoperative stenting remains controversial with a recent movement away from stenting.
