Abstract

Clinical outcomes of 11 patients who underwent cutting balloon treatment for the presence of benign airway strictures resistant to conventional balloon dilation are described. Cutting balloon treatment was technically and clinically successful in all 11 patients, with no major complications. During the mean 12.7-month follow-up period, there was recurrence in two patients, and the mean symptomatic improvement period was 23.1 months. The symptomatic improvement rates were 89% at 1 year and 59% at 2 years. Cutting balloon dilation can be a safe and effective therapeutic option for the treatment of benign bronchial strictures resistant to conventional balloon dilation.
