Abstract

LEITE, André Germano  and  KUSSLER, Douglas. Management of recurrent distal tracheal stenosis using an endoprosthesis: a case report. J. bras. pneumol. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.2, pp. 121-125. ISSN 1806-3713.

The authors report the case of a patient with recurrent distal tracheal stenosis after several tracheal resections. A T-Y tracheobronchial stent was inserted for the management of distal airway obstruction. The prosthesis was adapted based on the specifications obtained through a computed tomography scan of the chest with three-dimensional reconstruction.

Keywords : Tracheal stenosis; Prostheses and implants; Trachea [surgery]; Case reports.
