Cervicothoracic airway injury repair using double-wide intercostal muscle flap.

Abstract

We present a useful technique for the surgical management of long-segment cervicothoracic tracheobronchial injury using a double-wide intercostal muscle flap. This flap is a modification of a previously endorsed technique extending the ability to reinforce repairs of tracheobronchial injuries not adequately covered by a single intercostal muscle flap.
