Core Tip

Core Tip: Tracheobronchial injury is rare, but the mortality rate is high. A patient with large isolated fibrous tumor in the upper esophagus are at a high risk of airway injury during surgery due to the compression of the tracheal membrane, poor airway expandability. Our management experience shows that airway tools are preferred to single-lumen tubes with blockers for patients with difficult airways, which reduces the incidence of airway injury. Perioperative application of fibrinoscopy is necessary to monitor airway safety in real time and close cooperation with the operator reduces airway injury.
