230 – Bronchial Stent

230 - Aneumatosis of the lower right lobe

Aneumatosis of the right inferior lobe with evolution to atelectasis due to a carcinoma that occludes its bronchus. The fissure in this lobe will move towards the vertebral column during collapse. The indication of stents in distal or lobar bronchi was controversial (Journal of Bronchology & Interventional Pulmonology 24: 3; 211-215.2017). Here from the inside … Read more

222 – Stents and Stenosis

222 - Resection and end-to-end anastomosis

Several keloids on surgical scars on the neck. Keloids are strikingly common in cases where benign tracheal stenosis develops in patients who have been subjected to orotracheal intubation. External appearance of the trachea in the area of the stenosis. Resection and end-to-end anastomosis as the definitive solution for a recurrent stenosis.

218 – Stent Cut

218 - Stent cutting

Side cut scissors in “penguin head” ready to make a window in the wall of a silicone stent implanted in the left source bronchus. A positional defect caused the stent to partially obstruct the entry of the ipsilateral upper lobe bronchus, despite several attempts to reposition the prosthesis. Now a metal spike with the hooked … Read more

217 – Stent on Omega

217 - "Omega" layout of a stent

Arrangement in “omega” of a stent released inside the bronchial lumen. Different maneuvers will be necessary to complete its expansion. This task will be rewarded by the absence of migration that occurs after the implantation of stents that do not expand spontaneously and immediately. This occurs when prostheses of a wide diameter are chosen in … Read more
