Abstract

The symptoms of progressive dyspnea and strider in the setting of malignant airway obstruction are severe and distressing. Conservative nebulizer and oxygen therapy offer little relief, and conventional stenting with T tubes requires a tracheostomy. In this article, we describe our experience with stenting in the treatment of malignant mediastinaldisease using the Gianturco expanding metal-wire stents. The technique of placement is simple and the procedure was successful in all 21 cases. Relief of strider was immediate and the dyspnea usually abated. These benefits continued through the mean survival period after stenting of 134 days (range, 2 to 799 days). The patients required only briefhospitalization (2.83 days) before returning home or to the referringinstitution. It appears that expandable wire stents may offer a simple yet effective intervention in the palliative treatment of mediastinal malignancy.
