Abstract

The Ring-Sling Complex is an uncommon, congenital vascular and tracheobronchial malformation with a persistent high death rate. We report three patients in whom computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were used for the preoperative diagnosis and for staging of the morphologic tracheal and vascular anomalies.
