Mandibular lengthening by distraction for airway obstruction in Treacher-Collins syndrome



Mandibular lengthening by distraction for airway obstruction in Treacher-Collins syndrome



Journal of Craniofacial Surgery 5(1): 22-25



Mandibular lengthening by distraction was performed in a 6-year-old tracheostomy-dependent Treacher-Collins syndrome patient. Detailed preoperative imaging revealed an occluded retrotongue base pharyngeal airway, which, following mandibular distraction, became patent and permitted tracheostomy removal. Mandibular distraction as a technique must be targeted toward clinical problems--management of upper-airway obstruction may be one such scenario.
