Abstract

Since 1991, we have managed 57 patients with benign (10), malignant (23), or lung transplantation (24) airway obstructions using silicone stenting and debridement (manual/neodymium:yttrium-aluminum garnet laser). Ten patients with benign lesions (4 intubation, 4 inflammatory, I malacia, 1 bronchial fistula) had 4 T tubes, 3 Y stents, 3 bronchial stents, and 1 straight tracheal stent placed. Eight of 10 patients (80%) received symptomatic relief with the stents in place for up to 43 months. Twenty-three patients with malignant strictures (18 lung, 5 metastatic) had 26 stents inserted (13 Y stents, 12 bronchial, 1 T tube) of which 16 required combined debridement and stenting. Four stents required repositioning. Three hospital deaths were due to unrelated causes. Of 20 discharged patients, 6 remain alive at 2 to 10 months, whereas 14 patients who died of progressive disease obtained effective palliation for 10.5 +/- 5.6 months. Significant bronchial anastomotic complications developed in 24 of 212 lung transplants (11.3%). Thirty-one stents were placed in 19 of the patients; 5 patients were managed with laser debridement alone. Of the 19 patients receiving stents, 3 required only temporary stents (6 to 15 days), II patients needed long-term stents (40 to 507 days), and 5 patients died with their stents in place functioning well. All patients received symptomatic relief with stenting. There were no procedure-related deaths and one bronchial laceration during attempted stent placement. Early, aggressive treatment of benign and malignant tracheobronchial strictures with endoscopic debridement and stenting is safe and well tolerated, and effectively palliates airway obstruction. Repositioning of stents frequently may be required in the transplant population. Techniques of stent insertion require no specialized equipment and may be performed expeditiously with minimal morbidity.
