Tracheobronchial stenting for malignant airway disease: long-term outcomes from a single-center study



Tracheobronchial stenting for malignant airway disease: long-term outcomes from a single-center study



American Journal of Hospice and Palliative Care 30(7): 683-689



The aim of this retrospective study is to investigate the immediate and long-term outcomes following the insertion of covered and uncovered self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) for the management of malignant tracheobronchial disease. A total of 49 patients (27 male, mean age 60.9 ± 15 years) underwent 77 SEMS insertions (57 uncovered). The procedure was performed in theater using combined bronchoscopic and fluoroscopic guidance. The study's primary end points included technical success (97.9%), clinical success (91.8%), and symptom recurrence (14.2%). The mean follow-up time was 5.5 ± 5.9 months. We concluded that tracheobronchial SEMSs provide safe and effective minimally invasive long-term management of patients with symptomatic malignant airway disease.
