use trachea in a sentence.
You must have a very large trachea.
Strange that the article title refers to a bit of high drama rather than "we can make replacement tracheas from scratch now!
That's nice, but it doesn't answer the question of whether two days is a normal amount of time to grow a trachea or if they used a growth stimulant.
I was flabbergasted to read that the new trachea grew in two days.
My only-slightly-educated guess based off what I've read on this (read a few mentions of this story over the past week) is that while the child-sized trachea wouldn't just stop working/become disconnected, most likely there would be a later adult-sized replacement.
When a doctor says you have a "malignant neoplasm on the trachea", he is being precise, not obfuscatory.
If a doctor tells me tomorrow that I have a "malignant neoplasm on the trachea', is he an evil man that tries to hide the truth from me?
On the other hand, trauma room surgeons have minutes, sometimes seconds to decide whether to cut left or right of the trachea of this guy who was just rolled in and of whom they know nothing, sometimes not even the name, let alone medical history; and oh they need to hurry because there's another guy being rolled in who is also leaking blood out of every possible orifice, plus from the 3-inch hole in his chest.
