Life-threatening obstruction of the lower trachea is rare, and protocols for treating severe narrowing of the tracheal lumen are scant. We describe our management to provide safe airway control in a severely dyspnoeic patient with unilateral vocal cord paralysis and a 1 mm opening of the lower trachea.
