Paediatric Bronchoscopy and Airway Reconstruction

When a kid is born, they may have trouble breathing via their windpipe for a variety of reasons, including lung infections, malignancies, airway blockages, and infections following previous medical procedures. To identify the reason and provide the appropriate care, these may necessitate a procedure called bronchoscopy in the best Paediatric hospital in India. Children who have stridor, a congenital disorder, vocal cord paralysis or subglottic stenosis, a persistent cough, haemoptysis, or coughing up blood, and premature babies who need continuous respiratory support may all necessitate bronchoscopy.

Choosing Manipal Hospitals 

Manipal Hospitals has a state-of-the-art Cath Lab and skilled paediatricians and paediatric pulmonologists to perform specialised bronchoscopy and airway repair treatments in kids of various ages in the top Paediatric center in India . A bronchoscope, a unique flexible tube with a light and camera at the end of it, is used during bronchoscopy. It is inserted through the child's mouth or nose, down the throat, and into the lungs. It is carried out when completely unconscious. Other times, surgery may be necessary to repair the airways if they have been damaged as a result of bronchoscopy or prolonged breathing assistance. Our surgeons are highly skilled in performing laryngotracheal reconstruction, which entails reattaching cartilage from your child's ribs to the restricted portion of the windpipe. With the help of a stent, a plastic tube, the grafts are firmly held in place. Your child must go back to the hospital for a procedure to remove the stent six weeks after the grafts are fully healed.
