Self-Retaining Decompression Stent
- 28 Downloads
Decompression of odontogenic cysts is valuable in large cysts involving vital structures and cysts in pediatric and geriatric age-groups. The use of red rubber catheters, nasopharyngeal airways, intravenous tubing, nasal cannula tubing, and tuberculin syringes has been reported in catheterization of odontogenic cysts. These methods require some means of securing them to the tissues, like suturing or the use of screws.
Materials and Methods
We propose a new technique of making a self-retaining decompression stent from pediatric endotracheal tube.
The technique is simple and effective.
