Introduction

Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of neonatal and infantile stridor. Until the 1980s tracheostomy was the standard treatment for severe laryngomalacia. Aryepiglottoplasty was first performed in 1984, it has since been widely adopted as a safe and effective treatment for children with laryngomalacia. We present our experience of this procedure and highlight the clinical features affecting the likelihood of admission to a paediatric intensive care unit, complication rate and the length of post-operative hospital stay.
