An extended area of stenosis of the upper mediastinal trachea, which normally would require extensive thoracic mobilization for primary anastomosis, was corrected by resection of the manubrium with the creation of a trough. This was closed in several stages utilizing embedded Marlex mesh and regional skin flaps. The development and modifications of this technique are discussed.
