Burn-induced tracheal stenosis is rare. This article reports an extensive burn patient who developed severe tracheomalacia and stenosis before wound healing. Given the ineffectiveness of the conventional techniques available for the treatment of tracheal stenosis, we used an extended tracheal cannula to dilate the narrowed part of the trachea successfully. As a result, the extensive burn wound was repaired, and the symptoms of tracheal stenosis were eventually relieved. No serious restenosis was observed during a 2-year follow-up period.
