Removal of cartilage rings prevents graft stenosis in extended tracheal allotransplantation with omentopexy and immunosuppression: an experimental study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND One of the serious problems in longer size tracheal transplantation is severe stenosis of the graft, probably caused by an inadequate blood supply. We have previously reported that removal of some cartilage rings of the graft and omentopexy helps to provide sufficient blood flow to the graft mucosal tissue and results in satisfactory survival and… (More)
