In recent years the authors operated three casualties from non-European battlefields with severe laryngotracheal stenoses due to war injuries. Median laryngotomy (thyrocricotracheotomy) made a revision and modification of the internal injury possible. An implanted tube from a vascular prosthesis, packed in Hydron kept the replaced cartilaginous cross bar and possibly mucous grafts from a gingivobuccal fold in the correct position. A cross bar made from a cartilaginous or bony portion of a rib also dilated the lumen. It was kept in position by the perichondrium of the cartilaginous cross bar sutured to the margin of the mucosal remnants. All three patients were decannulated.
