Post-extubation stridor

Is anyone finding unanticipated post-extubation stridor, and the need for reintubation, in this group of patients? If so, is it perhaps more common in the group who underwent prone positioning? Did your patients receive steroids during the course of their care?

One patient with failed extubation due to stridor then received steroids. Extubated again with fiberscope in ETT on extubation revealed granulation tissues at cords and laryngeal edema --> re-intubted then tracheostomy’s
