Abstract

Tracheal collapse is a complex disease process that occurs as a result of numerous microscopic and subsequent macroscopic tracheal changes. Several authors have evaluated the underlying causes behind the development of tracheal collapse, and this has led to an understanding of some aspects of the etiology. The signalment, history, and clinical signs of a patient with tracheal collapse are generally highly suggestive of the disease, although, other tools are often utilized to diagnose and assess the severity. Characteristic changes of tracheal collapse that can be noted on radiographs may include luminal narrowing (generally dorsoventral flattening) of the cervical and/or thoracic trachea; both inspiratory and expiratory views should be obtained to assess the trachea at both phases of respiration. Treatment of the patient in the emergency setting is aimed at relieving airway obstruction. All patients undergoing treatment for tracheal collapse require long-term observation and may require medical management.
