Endotracheal Intubation and Tracheostomy with Resulting Tracheal Stenosis - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
This stock medical exhibit begins by showing the basic steps of an endotracheal intubation, with a tube inserted into the trachea through the mouth. Next, the basic steps of a tracheostomy are shown, with a tube inserted directly into the trachea through an incision on the neck. Next, the subsequent condition is shown - cartilage destruction and scar tissue from the previous procedures have caused stenosis of the airway. Finally, multiple steps of the repair procedure are shown, including the neck incision and exposure of the trachea, removal of scar tissue, and reapproximation of the repaired trachea with sutures.
