Özet

Tracheomalacia(TM) is a structural abnormality of the tracheal cartilage causing collapse of its walls and airway obstruction. We describe herein a 4 month-old case of TM associated with operated esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula. Intraoperative flexible bronchoscope was performed for diagnosis for TM during aortopexy operation via partial sternotomy.
