Abstract

Recently, the use of tracheobronchial stents has increased greatly due to the advantages of easy placement and prompt airway relief. in addition, trachebronchial stents provide an alternative to open surgical procedures in select patients with benign tracheobronchial stenosis or obstruction, in particular those with tracheobronchial tuberculosis. This paper review the indications for tracheobronchial stent placement, appropriate stent selection, pre-procedure evaluation, and the results of stent placement for benign and malignant tracheobronchial strictures.
