An experimental fascial transferable bed was developed in the rabbit model. This tissue is reliable in bringing a viable mucosal graft inside the larynx. A vascular connective tissue sheet with full-thickness mucosa and autogenous cartilage for external support are needed. In this study a tracheal tube was preformed to study the use of autogenous cartilage as support for a circumferential lumen.
