Obstruction after self-expanding metallic stents in tuberculous bronchial stenosis.

Kim W, Lee YC, Rhee YK - Korean J. Intern. Med. (1995)

Bottom Line: Expandable metallic stents seemed to be a good method in tuberculous bronchial stenosis that does not respond to medical therapy.But there was no long-term follow-up study after stents insertion in tuberculous bronchial stenosis.We report a case of obstruction after successful Gianturco metallic stents insertion due to tuberculous bronchial stenosis.
