We report an 86-year-old woman with a large tracheal laceration caused by tracheal intubation at cardiopulmonary arrest who underwent a successful stent procedure. Tracheal laceration developed in the membranous portion longitudinally 6 cm in length to 2 cm above the carina. Following 9 days' tracheal intubation, a Y-shaped silicon stent was inserted over the lacerated trachea. Four months after the stenting procedure, we removed the Y-shaped silicon stent from the healed membranous wall. The patient returned to daily life without requiring thoracotomy.
