Gordon et al. Trachea Tracheal allograft transplantation has been investigated since the 1970s, with three documented attempts. A distinct obstacle in trachea allograft transplantation is its small network of nutrient vessels, eliminating the possibility of a vascularized pedicle. To overcome this surgeons have attempted to achieve neoangiogenesis using the sternocleidomastoid muscle and greater omentum. 41 The trachea was first implanted heterotopically into the recipient’s sternocleidomastoid muscle for 3 weeks, and then transferred into its anatomical position completing a two-stage operation.
