Abstract

We report the case of a patient who had an intubation-related tracheal injury who we treated by deployment of a covered tracheal stent. This approach may be preferable to other alternatives in patients with a prohibitive risk of mortality with surgical repair or in an injury with sequelae not suitable for conservative management.
