Description
We experienced two bronchogenic cysts with severe adhesion to the trachea. Both cysts were located on the right side of the trachea. The surgical procedure was changed to thoracotomy from thoracoscopic surgery due to strong adhesion to the trachea. In case 1, sharp separation of the cystic wall from the trachea led to tracheal wall damage. In case 2, the cystic wall except a portion which was adhered to the trachea was resected. The inner side of the residual cystic wall underwent dull curettage to remove the epithelial component. There were no postoperative complications in either case.
