Stents, Bronchial, Polymeric

Definition : Bronchial stents manufactured from polymeric materials such as silicone or silastics. These devices may include struts that project into the bronchial wall to help anchor the stent in place. Polymeric bronchial stents are mostly used to treat main-stem bronchial stenosis without carinal involvement caused either by benign diseases or malignant tumors, facilitating the flow of air into the lungs. They are usually inserted under general anesthesia using rigid bronchoscopes. These stents can be used for long periods and extracted if needed.
