Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Benign airway strictures refractory to balloon dilatation or stent placement remain a challenge in interventional radiology. This article describes the successful use of a cutting balloon to treat three cases of recurrent tuberculous bronchial strictures. CONCLUSION: In three patients, cutting balloon dilatation was found to be safe and effective and did not cause complications. Although the dilated lumen showed partial reduction over the 6- to 12-month follow-up, subjective functional symptoms and dyspnea grade improved.
