Recognizing and Treating Tracheobronchomalacia Course

Recognizing and Treating Tracheobronchomalacia

"Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) is an under-recognized cause of shortness of breath, recurrent respiratory infections and chronic coughing. It involves collapse of the main airways, due to a weakness of the cartilage and/or floppiness of the posterior membranous wall. The activity will inform physicians and advanced practitioners about the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in the management of TBM, from diagnosis to treatment. We emphasize the need of reserving surgery to severely symptomatic patients who fail medical therapy, and the importance of objective long-term follow-up of this challenging condition."
