Tracheobronchial tree: expandable metallic stents used in experimental and clinical applications. Work in progress.

Abstract

An expandable stainless steel stent was formulated for use in the treatment of tracheobronchial stenosis, tracheomalacia, and airway collapse following tracheal reconstruction. The stents were placed through an endotracheal tube into the trachea and bronchi of 11 healthy dogs. The stents expanded over time, substantially increasing the diameter of the lumen… (More)
