Specialists State of the Russian Cancer Research Center. NN Blokhin (RCRC) RAMS offered a new technique for the preparation of a donor trachea transplant. While she was tested on laboratory mice.

The trachea is a wide receiver, consisting of a 16-20 half-rings of cartilage covered with mucous membrane from the inside — epithelium. Certain infectious diseases, malignant tumors cause stenosis or injury, it is the compression of the trachea.
