Abstract

We report herein the rare case of a patient with endotracheal papillary adenocarcinoma of the goblet cell type. The tumor existed in the upper trachea, obstructing 95% of the airway, and prompt palliation was required. Endotracheal polypectomy was successfully performed in this patient using electrosurgery with a new snare designed for the respiratory tract. The procedure took only a few minutes and the dyspnea was relieved promptly without any complications. The alternative techniques for palliation of bronchial stenosis are also discussed.
