This ETT was withdrawn intermittently to help visualisation and aid surgical excision of the tumour and sleeve resection
of the trachea.
Other operations of permanent nature include vertical gastric sleeve resection and biliopancreatic diversion with or without duodenal switch.

Novel technique for relieving anastomotic tension using halovest immobilization after tracheal sleeve resection
Most widely accepted surgical procedures are Laparoscopic Gastric banding (LAGB), Sleeve resection
, Roux-en Y Gastric bypass, Bilio-Pancreatic bypass with or without duodenal switch.
The chapter on Resection in Stage I/ II Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer discusses lobectomy including VATS lobectomy, sleeve resection
and other limited resections as surgical options in patients with early stage NSCLC and gives a very pertinent conclusion that further subclassifications of stage and histopathological properties will enable us to define a better estimation of prognosis and a "tailored" individual treatment.

Patients are adequately treated with sleeve resection
and primary anastomosis whenever possible.
