Endoluminal dilatation and stenting is an alternative management strategy in patients with tracheal stenosis. Providing anaesthesia and maintaining oxygenation during tracheal stenting can be difficult. There are various anaesthetic techniques available for this procedure, based on the characteristics of stenosis and anaesthesiologist experience. A good knowledge about the procedure and communication with the radiologist are essential for the safe conduct of anaesthesia. In patients with near total obstruction and respiratory insufficiency, airway manipulation or coughing can result in complete loss of the airway. Herewith we report the anesthetic management of two cases with tracheal stenosis for stenting.
