Abstract

Background: Postoperative strictures, which are still serious problems of tracheal surgery, are caused by an inflammatory reaction with subsequent edema and granulation tissue formation. Taking this into consideration, we have designed a study in which tenoxicam (potent, non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug) was used after a tracheal surgery in rats.
