The main aim of tracheal restoration is to provide a noncollapsible construction with a functional epithelial lining and well-vascularized coverage. The authors present the case of a successful tracheal reconstruction in a patient with recurrent thyroid gland cancer infiltrating the trachea. The free radial forearm flap was formed as a tube and suspended to the mesh rings placed outside. Currently the patient has no problems with breathing.
