41 years old male. On october of 2015 he was diagnosed with right lung cancer. Despite of chemo and radiation therapy his condition worsened. He developed stridor, suffocation, shortness of breath while resting. Chest CT revealed enlarged lymph nodes, which surrounded trachea and narrowed it critically. Thoracic surgeons considered impossible to perform tracheostomy. Under vital indications was decided perform tracheal stenting. Because of the impossibility of intubation, the manipulation was performed under the local anesthesia. Before stenting the patient had a breathing exercise, as a result he was able to hold his breath for up to 10 seconds while stent was opened. The result was immediate. Stridor was disappeared, saturation increased to 96-97%.
