Treatment of pulmonary artery compression due to fibrous mediastinitis with endovascular stent placement.

Abstract

We present the case of a 32-year-old woman with high-grade right pulmonary artery stenosis secondary to fibrous mediastinitis. The patient was managed with balloon angioplasty and stent placement. Only 15 cases of this nature have been reported in the literature, and this is one of the first to be managed with endovascular stent placement.
