Thoracoscopic aortopexy for vascular compression of the trachea: approach from the right.

Tracheomalacia resulting from vascular compression of the trachea may require aortopexy for symptomatic relief. Several operative approaches have been described for infants and children. The authors describe the technique of aortopexy by means of a right-sided thoracoscopic method as the initial approach to relieve tracheal compression in 2 children. Intraoperative bronchoscopy is mandatory to assess the adequacy of aortopexy prior to the completion of suture placement. This procedure was very successful in relieving tracheal compression in a 17-month-old boy with an aberrant innominate artery take-off and in a 2-year and 7-month-old boy with a history of esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula repair and severe tracheomalacia. A right-sided thoracoscopic approach to aortopexy in infants with severe tracheomalacia may be successfully performed as the initial operative intervention in infants with vascular compression of the trachea.
