P035 Postthyroidectomy Supraglottoplasty: Laryngomalacia From Massive Goiter

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):872. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.872-a

Objective: Airway management in patients with massive goiters can be challenging, potentially requiring fiberoptic intubation or tracheotomy. I present the case of a massive goiter with significant retropharyngeal, retrolaryngeal, and retroesophageal extension resulting in postthyroidectomy laryngomalacia. No other case has ever been reported.

Design: Case report.

Setting: Tertiary care center.
