Indikation, technische Durchführung und Ergebnisse der endobronchialen Stentimplantation
Indications Technical Implementation and Results of Endobronchial Stent Implantatio
14 patients with central malignant airway obstructions (n = 10), poststenotic pneumonia (n = 2) and esophagotracheal fistulas (n = 2) were treated with self-expanding stents in the trachea (n = 9), right (n = 4) and left (n = 1) main bronchus. The results showed that stent implantation in the tracheobronchial system is a very effective palliative treatment in the above-mentioned indications which takes immediate effect and complements the already established palliative therapy modalities in central airway malignancies.
