Airway Research: Studies to Improve Outcomes
Research is a key component of CHOP's Neonatal Airway Program. We are engaged in studies to improve patient outcomes and enhance the field of otolaryngology.
Some current research includes:
- Gene-transfer methods of growth factors to prevent subglottic stenosis
- Genetic analysis of congenital airway problems
- Comparison of surgical outcomes of congenital and acquired stenosis
- Bedside patient-oriented research involving tracheostomy skin protection devices
- Bedside sleep studies of patients with micrognathia and other airway problems — before and after intervention
- Development of a surgical atlas of pediatric airway surgery
- Creation of a tracheostomy database and analysis of predictors in neonatal tracheostomy
