What are the different types of tracheal disorders? | Dr. Parthiv Shah | Chest physician in Mumbai

Tracheal disorders are classified into two types:
Tracheal stenosis is a narrowing of the trachea, or "windpipe," which prevents air from reaching the lungs completely. The severity of the effects of this narrowing can range from mild to severe. In the most severe cases, the patient may need to breathe through a tracheotomy tube.
Tracheomalacia is a condition in which the cartilage in the tracheal walls has broken down, causing weakness or floppiness in the windpipe. Normal breathing requires a rigid trachea. Tracheomalacia can be present at birth in infants, but it can also develop later in life in adults.
Tracheal tumours, while uncommon, can cause narrowing of the windpipe, preventing air from reaching the lungs completely. They can also cause blood coughing.
