Objective: To highlight the incidence of subglottic stenosis (SGS) as a complication of surgery for congenital heart disease and the role of single-stage laryngotracheoplasty in treating this complication.

Design: Retrospective case series.

Setting: University-based referral center specializing in surgery for congenital heart disease and complex airway problem management.

Intervention: Laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR).

Main outcome measure: Successful airway expansion.

Results: At last follow-up, 87.5% (7 of 8) of patients remain free of obstructive airway symptoms.

Conclusion: SGS can complicate surgery for congenital heart disease in children. Single-stage LTR is an effective treatment modality for this problem.
