We find that the treatment indicated for bilateral choanal atresia in the newborn is the transnasal approach, maintaining the patency by means of soft tubes (endotracheal) through 5-7 weeks. The few which recurred were managed by the transpalatal technique. The AA. describe their own experience in 10 cases seen at the ENT-department of the Servasa Hospital, Alicante, between 1979-1989.
