Purpose of review: To describe the efficacy of mitomycin C in combating airway stenosis. Recent findings: Recent publications discussing mitomycin C utility have not altered the mixed results previously established by prospective trials. Summary: Mitomycin C has been used for the past 16 years to inhibit pediatric airway fibroblast proliferation. Its benefit remains more hypothetical than proven and its future role remains uncertain.
