Abstract

We report a case of 51-year-old woman with a severely airway-obstructing leiomyoma who underwent successful tracheal resection. A preoperative tumor biopsy was avoided not to cause any risk of suffocation. At surgery, an endotracheal intubation distal to the tumor was achieved with a bronchoscopic guidance. A segmental resection of the trachea with a primary end-to-end anastomosis was performed via a half-splitting median sternotomy. Negative surgical margins for tumor were confirmed intraoperatively. Final pathological diagnosis was a primary tracheal leiomyoma. Definitive surgical resection is a treatment of choice for such airway-obstructing, wide-based leiomyoma. Although a bronchoscopic removal of the tumor is an alternative choice, the risks of suffocation, positive surgical margins, and perforation of the trachea need to be carefully discussed if it is considered.
