Carinal resections are frequently performed for carinal tumors. Resection of the carina due to distal tracheal tumors may be required, and the extension of main bronchial tumors to the carina may lead to carinal resection. This is one of the rarely performed operations in thoracic surgery, which is technically challenging and has a high complication rate. In the early series, perioperative mortality rate was reported as 29% and the five-year survival rate as 15%. Due to its technical difficulties and high complication rates, it is performed only in certain centers. In this review, we discuss techniques related to carinal sleeve resection and prognostic factors in the light of literature data.
