Tracheal resection following prolonged intubation in a COVID-19 patient
Only six months into the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic in South Africa, we present the first post-coronavirus disease (COVID-19) subglottic stenosis seen at Morningside Clinic. Ten weeks prior to the current admission, this 48-year old patient with diabetes, obesity and hypertension developed severe COVID-19 pneumonia. He was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for 14 days of mechanical ventilation and intermitted prone positioning for optimal V/Q matching.
