Chronic strep related to traumatic extubation w/ephasagil damage?

We are wondering if there could be a connection to our daughters constant strep (antibotic resistant) and the fact that her airway was damage due to traumatic self-extubation and re-intubation resulting in airway scarring to the point of needing emergency surgery to laser tissue. When discovered, she had less that 2 millimeter opening in airway and at time Dr. thought trach. was going to be preformed but airway was managed and trach. was not nessecary. Anyway, since she  had constant strep until tonsils and adnoids were removed and we wondered if there could possibly be a connection?
