Tracheal stenosis is an important clinical problem. Several treatment modalities are being used such as tracheal dilatation, laser surgery, surgical resection, and reconstruction. Surgery of the trachea is a special endeavor where the airway is shared by the surgeon and the anesthesiologist. In this article, we discussed the various methods of anesthesia and airway management in three cases who developed tracheal stenosis secondary to prolonged intubation in intensive care and were performed tracheal dilation, laser surgery, resection, and end-to-end anastomosis.
