Özet

We describe lateral resection of tracheal tumors and repair of the defect with a composite graft of nasal septal mucosa and cartilage. The preliminary experience with this technique in 3 patients was satisfactory. The procedure can be used for patients who are not candidates for standard resection and end-to-end anastomosis.
