195 – Stent in Tracheal Stenosis

“Ideal” position for a tracheal stent in the treatment of unresectable stenosis.

The device is “trapped” in the area of the stenosis and its anterior end is “floating” in the tracheal lumen.
Thus, this position reduces the possibility of the appearance of granulomas.

The distal end of the prosthesis is still somewhat folded.
The defect can be corrected manually with a long clamp, or spontaneously in the days following the implant.
