The proposed protocol will involve the replacement of the trachea using a synthetic bioengineered scaffold seeded with autologous mononuclear cells as an intraoperative solution for patients with with benign and malignant laryngo-tracheal diseases or other terminal conditions of the trachea.

Tracheal transplant is indicated as the only therapeutic alternative in cases where instrumental, endoscopic and other evaluations show that the length of residual healthy airways (about 6 cm or longer than 50% of the airway length) and the localization and extension of the obstruction make it impossible to perform a surgical resection of the pathological segment.

In addition to tracheal surgical transplant techniques, this protocol requires knowledge and experience with autologous cell preparation as well as scaffold seeding procedures.

Condition Intervention
Tracheal Diseases
Device: Stem-cell seeded bioartificial tracheal scaffold

Study Type: Interventional

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients With Benign and Malignant Laryngo-Tracheal Diseases [ Time Frame: Within first 30 days after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    A tissue engineered tracheobronchial transplant using a bioengineered nanocomposite and autologous mononuclear cells may represent the only curative chance for terminal patients. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells are able to stimulate the migration of peripheral blood stem cells to transplanted laryngo-tracheal segments and to cause their differentiation into both respiratory epithelium and cartilaginous cells.
