Partial resection of the tracheal wall and reconstruction by “introverting” tracheoplasty

Nazari S., Aluffi M., Buniva P., Mourad Z.


PDF


A tracheal tumor involving roughly the half circumference of the tracheal wall and 3,5 cm length, was resected preserving the part of the tracheal cylinder not invaded by the tumor; reconstruction was carried out by an introverting tracheoplasty. This reconstruction technique, already successfully carried out in main bronchus resections, allowed iuxtapositioning of the tracheal rims very firmly without tension, the maneuvers for laryngeal or carenal release being not necessary.
