Kolb and colleagues describe their experience with tracheal replacement in a 12-year-old child with severe tracheal stenosis, for whom other available treatments had failed. The surgical team fashioned the new trachea from a myocutaneous latissimus dorsi free flap and chondrocartilage slings, using techniques that have been successfully performed in adults.
