Surgical challenges for the critical airway



  • Management of the neonate with airway obstruction begins in the fetal period with initial evaluation involving the use of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. The airway can be obstructed at several levels, from the nasal cavity to the tracheobronchi. This chapter will give a brief overview of several lesions that can cause critical obstruction in the neonatal airway necessitating early surgical intervention.
