Tracheal stenosis may occur after congenital problems and long-term endotracheal tube compression. Spinal stenosis is one of the 3 most common reasons in patients undergoing surgery due to low back and leg pain. Both general and regional anesthesia are used for lumbar surgery. A 56-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with low back pain and leg paresthesia. A permanent tracheal stent was placed 11 years ago due to tracheal stenosis developed after tracheostomy performed for anaphylaxis and respiratory depression. Herein, a case of regional anesthesia technique applied during spinal stenosis surgery is presented.
