This unusual case involves pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy complicated by injury to the membranous trachea and right bronchus. Repair was possible after partial sternal split and elevation of the tracheostoma through the anterior mediastinum, pulling the stomach to the neck, and using the stomach as a patch to repair the injury to the membranous portion of the airway.
