Patient Testimonial for Bronchoscopy for Tracheal Stenosis

Testimonial by Mrs. Indra Devi

Treatment for: Bronchoscopy for Tracheal Stenosis
Treated by: Dr. Viswesvaran Balasubramanian
Patient location: West Bengal

The term “tracheal stenosis” refers to an abnormal constriction of the trachea that impairs normal breathing.

During a bronchoscopy, doctors can examine the lungs and airways. It is typically carried out by a pulmonologist (doctor who specialises in lung problems). In order to inspect the lungs and airways, a narrow tube (called a bronchoscope) is inserted via nose or mouth, down the throat, and into the lungs during bronchoscopy.

The patient was experiencing shortness of breath, which was limiting her day-to-day activities. She was diagnosed with stridor (a high-pitched, whistling sound most typically heard while inhaling), an indication of a respiratory attack.

The patient required immediate surgery and was taken to the operating room. A bronchoscope was used to inspect her airway. The surgery was quite dangerous because 90% of her lumen was blocked. Cryotherapy was used to dilate the tracheal stenosis (the use of intense cold to freeze and eliminate abnormal tissue).

The patient was able to breathe without any difficulty after the ventilator was removed the following day. She recovered quickly and was able to carry on with her daily routines.

Mrs. Indra Devi from West Bengal, underwent a Bronchoscopy for Tracheal Stenosis, under the supervision of Dr. Viswesvaran Balasubramanian, Consultant Interventional Pulmonology and Sleep Medicine, Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad.
