Veterinary silicone stent alternative to temporary tracheostomy in case of traumatic glottic oedema

Updated: 6 days ago

This clinical case study explores the use of Veterinary silicone stent alternative to temporary tracheostomy for treating a traumatic laryngeal edema in a four-month-old Springer Spaniel. The silicone stent provided effective airway management, improved respiratory function, and allowed for recovery with minimal complications. The study highlights the stent's benefits, such as being less invasive and easier to manage compared to traditional methods, despite the higher cost and mucosal sensitivity.

The successful outcome suggests that silicone stents could be a viable option for similar cases in veterinary medicine.
