A subset of patients with severe airway disease cannot be adequately supported with conventional mechanical ventilation during complex airway procedures. We report the successful respiratory support of a patient with severe tracheobronchomalacia with venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation during rigid bronchoscopy with stent removal and stent placement.
