The most challenging laryngotracheal stenoses are those that exceed 5 cm in length and involve more than one area of the larynx and trachea contiguously.

A successful technique for the repair of these injuries with a three-stage laryngotracheal trough was created followed by anterior tracheal wall replacement with a skin-Marlex-muscle pedicle flap.
