BACKGROUND Silicone stenting has been widely used to palliate respiratory symptoms in patients suffering from airway stenosis. Although many types and shapes of stents have been developed, there is no ideal stent for stenosis around the carina between the bronchus to the right upper lobe and the bronchus intermedius (primary right carina). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of a new silicone stent designed for treating airway stenosis around the… CONTINUE READING
