San Diego, CA Balloon catheters are more effective than rigid dilators and are more effective as primary therapy for laryngotracheal stenosis (LTS) in pediatric patients.

Study results show balloon dilatation alone (4 studies, n=8) and with adjuvant therapy (7 studies, n=37), success rates were 50% and 76%, respectively. In studies using rigid dilatation alone (5 studies, n=80) and with adjuvant therapy (5 studies, n=108), success rates were 56% and 60%, respectively. Treatment algorithms based on level, type and grade of LTS were proposed.
