In the case of airway problems, airway resection and reconstruction in advanced esophageal cancer is technically challenging and has poor post-surgical outcomes.[ As the use of veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for respiratory support has increased, application of ECMO has emerged an effective option in airway emergency.
