Abstract

Gianturco self-expandable stents were used successfully in the management of 5 patients with tracheobronchial pathology. Placement was performed under endoscopic and fluoroscopic guidance. None of the patients has experienced complications secondary to the stent placement, and in all of them the clinical problems resolved satisfactorily. Longer follow-up is required to determine the place of tracheobronchial stenting in patients with respiratory compromise.
