Airway patency following repair for choanal atresia is effectively maintained utilizing Argyle polyethylene chest tubes as stents. Retrograde placement of the tubes from the mouth into the nasal passage is accomplished so that once secured, the largest diameter of the tubes is wedged against the posterior portion of the nasal ostium. This approach limits anterior migration of the tubes, preserving the columella and nasal rims while ensuring maintenance of airway patency following treatment of choanal atresia.
