Learning objectives: Evaluation of the safety and clinical effectiveness of stent placement in patients with Malignant tracheobronchial strictures (MTBSs) and to analyze the prognostic factors of patient survival after stent placement.

Background: Since the first report of self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) placement to treat MTBSs in 1990 , SEMS placement has become an accepted initial therapy for patients with MTBSs, primarily because it is effective in intraluminal and extrinsic compression and offers prompt relief from acute airway dis[...]

Findings and procedure details: A total of 134 tracheobronchial stents were placed in 125 patients and were technically successful in all patients. Improvement of dyspnea was achieved in 87% of the patients. Complications occurred in 24 of 125 patients. The median survival period was 71 days and the median stent patency time after[...]

Conclusion: Stent placement of malignant trachoebronchial strictures is a safe, minimally invasive primary treatment that relieved symptoms in a large percentage of patients (87%). An extrinsic compression, anti-cancer treatment before stent placement, and cancer stage IV appear to be associated with patient su[...]
