Study Description: This study intends to create a multi-institutional prospective cohort idiopathic subglottic stenosis (iSGS) patients, and enable rigorous treatment strategies comparisons to determine the most common treatment of iSGS work and determine the quality of life trade-offs are associated with each treatment approch. This rigorous prospective treatment comparisons will provide information to patients so that they can answer the following questions; 1) give my personal characteristics, conditions and preferences, what should I expect will happen to me? and 2) what are my options and what are the potential benefits and harms of these options? The primary endpoint is treatment effectiveness - time to recurrent procedure and need for tracheostomy, and the secondary endpoint is health and quality of life trade offs - patient reported outcome measures in voice, swallowing, breathing, and global quality of life.
