Technical Options In Carinal Resection And Reconstruction
Intraoperative view of a ventilation mode

By Marco Schiavon, MD, Giuseppe Marulli, MD, PhD, Fabio De Filippis, MD, et al

Tumors invading the tracheobronchial angle or the carina represent a challenge due to the complexity of airway reconstruction and management. Carinal resection, a complex and aggressive procedure for the treatment of these tumors, may be a safe approach for highly selected patients, in experienced centers with acceptable morbidity and mortality and good long-term survival.
