What Is Airway Reconstruction?

The airway is the passageway for air to travel between the outside world and the lungs. There are many names for different parts of the airway, including the windpipe, trachea, voice box, larynx and Adam’s apple.

Sometimes children are born with difficulty breathing through the windpipe, and other times these conditions develop during childhood or after other medical procedures. In many cases, this will require that surgeons rebuild various parts of the airway to make sure that the child can breathe without assistance from a breathing tube or tracheostomy.
