Abstract

Surgical resection of tumors which are located within or extend into the tracheal carina is challenging. Complete carinal resection can be safely performed, if an appropriate reconstructive method is selected based on the tumor location. In this article, we report three cases in which different carinal reconstruction methods were applied.
