Abstract
Objective: the aim of this case series is to report on the placement of a laryngeal silicone stent in seven dogs with laryngeal paralysis and its use as an alternative treatment of respiratory distress caused by laryngeal paralysis and/or its use for laryngeal stenosis as complication of laryngeal paralysis surgery.
Clinical report: each dog had either episodes of gagging, mild to severe inspiratory distress or cyanosis because of a laryngeal paralysis or laryngeal stenosis. In each case the laryngeal paralysis was diagnosed by direct laryngoscopy. They were treated with a silicone laryngeal stent (SteningĀ®) that substantially improved the clinical signs. Each dog had a different outcome because of other pathologies, however the laryngeal pathology was successfully treated with the stent.
New information provided: this article describes the use of a laryngeal stent to treat the canine laryngeal paralysis in its acute or chronic stage and also its possible use over a longer period of time or until surgery can be performed. The technique is easy to learn and practice, this technique could avoid the life threatening complications of the pathology at the acute phase and it could be a non invasive and long-term alternative therapy for laryngeal paralysis in dogs.

Key words: canine, polineuropathy, prosthesis, surgery
