Abstract

After laryngeal surgery, cranial glottic stenosis secondary to laryngeal web formation was diagnosed as the cause of upper airway obstruction in 4 dogs. Initial treatment of 3 dogs by peroral laryngeal web excision resulted in rapid recurrence of clinical signs. Subsequently, these 3 and the fourth dog were treated by scar excision, mucosal flap coverage, and placement of a silicone intraluminal laryngeal stent for 14 days. By 5 months (average) after surgery, on the basis of clinical evaluation of exercise intolerance, respiratory distress, and stridor, all dogs had alleviation of upper airway obstruction.
