Abstract

Objective: Estrogen and progesterone have the decreasing effect on massive collagen synthesis in wound heating. Here, it is aimed to determine their decreasing effect on collagen accumulation and fibroblast proliferation in trachea histologically and to understand if they would be protective for tracheal stenosis.
