Abstract Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica is a rare benign condition where multiple cartilaginous or bony submucosal nodules project into the trachea or bronchi. A 71-year-old man complained of cough for 3 months. Computed tomography scanning revealed a calcified tracheal tumor near the tracheal bifurcation. Pulmonary function testing indicated airflow limitation, and bronchoscopic examination confirmed a solitary rigid tumor. Bronchoscopic resection was performed under general anesthesia, and the tumor was detached by cauterizing its stem with high-frequency coagulation. The tumor was pathologically indi...

Authors: Liu Y, Jiang H, Xu Q, Zhou H, Li Y Abstract Liposarcoma is the most common type of soft-tissue sarcoma, and predominantly originates from the extremities and retroperitoneal cavity. However, primary endobronchial liposarcoma is extremely rare. The present study reports on the case of a 54-year-old man, a smoker, diagnosed with primary endobronchial atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT-WDLS), which was successfully resected via bronchoscopy. Chest computed tomography (CT) revealed a neoplasm in the left main bronchus measuring 12.8×7.8 mm. Bronchoscopy demonstrated multiple r...

ConclusionThe use of Montgomery T-tube for the post-intubation tracheal stenosis is less time-consuming, cost-effective, associated with less morbidity and mortality, and can be done even in a general hospital setup.

We describe a case presenting with tracheal tumor wherein a Microlaryngeal tube was advanced into the trachea distal to the tumor for primary airway control followed by cannulation of both endobronchial lumen with 5.5 mm endotracheal tubes to provide independent lung ventilation post tracheal transection using Y- connector attached to anesthesia machine. The plan was formulated to provide maximal surgical access to the trachea while providing adequate ventilation at the same time. A 32 yrs non smoker male, complaining of cough, progressive dyspnea and hemoptysis was diagnosed to have a broad based mass in the trachea on co...
