OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To determine whether stent-to-vocal fold distance influences morbidity following stent placement for tracheal stenosis. METHODS Fifty-five stent procedures (46 Montgomery T-tube [Boston Medical Products, Westborough, MA] and 9 Dumon stents [Novatech, Grasse, France]) were performed in 40 patients enrolled in this study.
