The aim of this study is to evaluate the results obtained in Department of Otolaryngology et Oncology with transversal resection of trachea acc. to Pearson technique for postintubation stenosis.

Methods: from January 2000 to January 2008 ten patients with subglottic postintubation stenosis underwent surgical treatment, using Pearsons method of operation with preservation of recurrent nerves and no postopereative tracheostomy. Mean stenosis length was 2 cm, the length of of airway resection was 1,5-4 cm.

Results: There was no surgical or postoperative complications, all the patients get totally health, no restenosis was observed. The results confirm that the Pearsons method of operation is an adequate treatment for subglottic stenosis.
