LISBONA A, María Pilar et al. Unilateral congenital choanal atresia in adult patient: Case report and bibliographical review about surgical approaches, complications and additional treatments. Rev. Otorrinolaringol. Cir. Cabeza Cuello [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.3, pp. 253-258. ISSN 0718-4816. doi: 10.4067/S0718-48162010000300009.
Choanal atresia is a very rare condition, usually it's diagnosticated in early age. It represents a surgical challenge for the high tendency to restenosis, being actually the endoscopic treatment first option. Other treatments like postoperative stents or topical mitomycin-C in order to avoid restenosis are controversial, and there is a lack of consensus. We present an adult case with unilateral choanal atresia treated by transnasal endoscopic technique and It's carry out a bibliographical review about the current treatment state of this pathology.
