Particular categories of patients (22q11 chromosome deletion, neonates/infants, patients with dominant/exclusive collaterals,) may be more predisposed to develop airway limitation. The treatment of the lesion should be individualized according to the supposed pathogenic mechanism. We suggest endoluminal treatment in absence of compression by vascular structures while surgery was used in proven case of extrinsic compression.
