Abstract

In tracheal stenosis, airway management is most challenging for anesthesiologists. A small sized endotracheal tube, laryngeal mask airway, with high frequency jet ventilation can be used, but may result in ineffective oxygenation and ventilation. In such cases, extracorporeal life support, ECLS, can be helpful. Herein, a case of tracheal stenosis in an adult assisted with the ECLS is reported.
