Embryologically, the thyroid descends from the foramen cecum in the posterior aspect of the tongue to its usual (orthotopic) position anterior to the upper tracheal rings.
Researchers measured relaxant responses to methacholine or histamine contraction via isometric tension measurement of guinea pig tracheal rings, and found that ASM-024 not only induces in vitro smooth muscle relaxation of histamine-contracted tracheas, but also has an additive relaxant effect to muscarinic acetylcholine receptor agonists after methacholine-induced contraction, suggesting that ASM-024 has different functional activity from these drugs.
Flexible bronchoscopy showed collapse of the anterior tracheal wall at the region of the third and fourth tracheal rings resulting in localised tracheal stenosis correlating with the CT findings.
A tracheal stenosis was diagnosed by endoscopy and treated by surgical resection of 5 tracheal rings and tracheal anastomosis.
