You are being asked to take part in this research study because you have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Subglottic Stenosis (iSGS). iSGS is a narrowing of your trachea, which is the breathing tube from your mouth to your lungs. Your doctor will decide the best course of treatment for you, and we would like to gather information from your chart while you are being treated for this disease. We hope to learn more about common treatments for iSGS, how well they work, and how this disease affects the quality of your life. We would also like to collect blood and tissue samples from study patients to help us better understand the causes of iSGS. Our goal is to provide ways to prevent and better manage this disease. One purpose of this study is to look at genes (DNA) and how they affect health and disease. Genes are the instruction manual for your body. The genes you get from your parents decide what you look like and how your body behaves. They can also tell us a person’s risk for certain diseases and how they will respond to treatment.
