Abstract

Conclusion. This study suggests that placing no drainage tube and postoperative bleeding are risk factors for postoperative airway compromise (PAC) following arytenoid adduction (AA). Objectives. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the risk factors for PAC following AA. Patients and methods. The data for 184 consecutive patients who underwent AA were analyzed retrospectively. Univariate and forward stepwise multivariate logistic regression analyses were performed. Results. Placing no drainage tube was a significant risk factor for PAC as determined by both univariate and multivariate analyses. Postoperative bleeding was a significant risk factor for severe airway compromise requiring emergency airway treatment.
