Tracheal and bronchial surgery is one of the most recent areas of development in surgery, with techniques being refined in parallel with other modern surgical innovations in open heart surgery and solid organ transplantation. Conditions involving the central airways are uncommon, but not rare, and until relatively recently were managed only with palliative techniques- radiation for malignant disease and permanent airway appliances for benign disease. Pioneering work involved several surgeons worldwide, with major advances in technique and indications developed by Dr. Hermes Grillo in Boston and Dr. F. Giffith Pearson in Toronto. Techniques developed and refined by Drs. Grillo and Pearson, along with others, for the first time allowed patients with life limiting central airway pathology undergo definitive surgical management with expectations of a cure combined with a good quality of life.
