Tracheal Tumors and Airway Management

Tracheal tumors occur in the trachea, also known as the windpipe. Airway management uses medical procedures and devices for the purpose of maintaining or restoring ventilation in a patient which is reduced by the tumors.

Malignant Pleural Effusions

A malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a fairly common complication in a number of different cancers. There is a build up of fluid and cancer cells that collects between the chest wall and the lung. MPE causes you to have chest discomfort as well as feel short of breath.

Thyroidectomy

A thyroidectomy is surgery to remove your thyroid gland. This gland is shaped like a butterfly. It lies across the windpipe (trachea). The gland makes hormones that control how your body makes and uses energy (metabolism).

Bronchoscopy

During this procedure, a flexible tube is used to look at your airway, a bronchoscope. This is done to look for growth, problems with the airway and diagnose breathing problems.

Esophagectomy

This surgery removes all or part of the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. The healthy part of the esophagus is connected to the stomach or colon so that you can still swallow and eat food. This surgery is mainly used when a patient has esophageal cancer.
