Stents, Bronchial, Metallic, Balloon-Expandable

Definition : Metallic bronchial stents designed to be expanded using a high-pressure balloon after delivery, applying a constant radial pressure to the bronchial walls. Some of these stents are radiopaque or include radiopaque markers for accurate positioning. Balloon-expandable bronchial stents are typically deployed under local anesthetics using flexible bronchoscopes; they are mostly used to treat stenosis caused by malignant tumors.
