In this video we will show a tracheal resection with a termino-terminal anastomosis in a patient with a chondroma/ low grade chondrosarcoma of the trachea. After the skin incision, we dissect by planes, and we separate the strap muscles in the midline, in order to reach the trachea. To be able to have a full exposure, we cut the thyroid isthmus to move the thyroid lobes laterally. Once the trachea is fully exposed and the tumor well delineated, we cut the trachea above and below the tumor and we reconstruct it by doing a termino-terminal anastomosis, an end-to-end suture, since the length of trachea that needed to be removed in this case allowed this technique.
