In this video we are showing a dilation of an idiopathic subglottic stenosis in a 80 years-old woman. We start using a laryngoscope, to first inject corticosteroids into the stenosis. After that, we cut the scar with cold steel and we then proceed with the balloon dilation, with a 15mm balloon. To do the balloon dilation we leave the patient in apnea and we remove the endotracheal tube. After a minute, we intubate again and we re-start ventilation. We repeat this as many times as needed. The results of this case were excellent.
