Results No patient died from operation in the 258 cases,and the overall 5-and 10-year survival rates were 64.O%(165/258)and 58.1%(150/258),respectively.The morbidity rate was 5.4%(14/258).Conclusiom Surgical excision is the most effective treatment of malimmnt tracheal tumor.Tracheal resection and carinal reflection are the main operative methods in the treatment of malignant tracheal tumor.Decreasing operative complications is the key of successfully surgical treatment.
