Successful use of self-expandable metal stents in a case of iatrogenic tracheal rupture.

Radiol Case Rep 2019 Mar 26;14(3):377-380. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Ospedale S.Giovanni Battista, Università Tor Vergata, Roma, Italy.

As an alternative treatment to immediate surgical repair, endotracheal stent placement has been recently proposed in cases of iatrogenic tracheal damages. We report a case of a 91-year-old male who developed sudden subcutaneous emphysema during a total laryngectomy for laryngeal carcinoma. A tracheal tear at the distal third of the posterior tracheal wall was endoscopically assessed about 2 cm above the carina; CT confirmed the breach approximately 4 cm in length with associated pneumomediastinum and bilateral pneumothorax.

Difficulty in tracheal extubation followed by tracheal collapse after balloon dilatation for tracheal stenosis therapy: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Jun;97(22):e10907

Department of Anesthesiology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, PR China.

Rationale: Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) refers to the weakening trachea or the trachea loss of structural integrity of airway cartilaginous structures. It causes tracheal stenosis, resulting in significantly high rates of mortality. Bronchoplasty by high-pressure balloon dilation under general anesthesia is a simple but effective and safe method to treat tracheobronchial stenosis. Read More

Safety and Efficacy of a Fully Covered Self-Expandable Metallic Stent in Benign Airway Stenosis.

Respiration 2017 28;93(6):430-435. Epub 2017 Apr 28.

Department of Thoracic Oncology, Pleural Disease, and Interventional Pulmonology, North Hospital, Marseilles, France.

Background: The use of self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) in benign airway disease was the object of a boxed warning from the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2005 due to the risk of stent-related complications and difficulties associated with their removal. Third-generation fully covered SEMS have been commercialized since this warning and theoretically should not present the same difficulties associated with removal as they cannot become embedded in the airway mucosa.

Objectives: We aimed to examine the safety and efficacy of a specific third-generation SEMS, the Silmet stent. Read More

Benign stenosis of the trachea.

Thorac Surg Clin 2014 Feb;24(1):59-65

Thoracic Surgery, Lung Clinic, Hospital of Cologne, University of Witten/Herdecke, Ostmerheimer str. 200, Cologne 51109, Germany.

Benign stenosis of trachea results mainly from tracheotomy, ventilation, or trauma. The combination of a defect of the mucosa or the tracheal wall and infection produce secondary scar tissue healing with shrinkage of the tracheal lumen or instability of the tracheal wall. Standard of treatment consists of resection of the pathologic segment of the trachea with end-to-end anastomosis. Read More

Anaesthesia for tracheobronchial stent insertion using an laryngeal mask airway and high-frequency jet ventilation.

Case Rep Med 2013 18;2013:950437. Epub 2013 Aug 18.

Department of Anaesthesia, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin 9, Ireland.

An approach which promotes a rapid return to spontaneous respiration after tracheobronchial stent (TBS) insertion is considered the optimal one and is a belief shared by anaesthetists, respiratory physicians, and surgeons alike (Calvey and William (2008)). The value of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA), followed by use of the Monsoon 111 Acutronic jet ventilator pressure limiting system of ventilation, for the deployment of stents in the three individual cases that of tracheoesophageal fistula, a bronchoesophageal fistula, and tracheal compression from an invading oesophageal malignant tumour are reported. The roles of target controlled anaesthesia, high-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV), and the laryngeal mask airway in optimising the surgical field and reducing the risk of bronchospasm at emergence are advantages of this technique.

Multi-stage surgery for airway patency after metallic stent removal in benign laryngotracheal airway disease in two adolescents.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2013 May 13;77(5):857-62. Epub 2013 Mar 13.

Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin, Department of Otolaryngology at UKB, Charité Medical School, Berlin, Germany.

Laryngotracheal stents may damage the highly complex laryngeal structures, impair voice and swallowing functions and cause tissue ingrowths, thereby necessitating airway patency interventions. In benign airway disease, the number of adolescents with laryngotracheal stents is therefore limited. We present two cases of laryngeal metallic stent placement following benign airway disease.

Obstructive sleep apnea due to extrathoracic tracheomalacia.

J Clin Sleep Med 2013 Feb 1;9(2):163-4. Epub 2013 Feb 1.

Pediatric Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, Children's Hospital at Montefiore, Bronx, NY 10467, USA.

We report obstructive sleep apnea in a 3-year-old boy with tracheomalacia secondary to tracheotomy that resolved after placement of a metallic stent in the region of tracheomalacia. The tracheal location of obstruction during sleep in this case contrasts with the usual location in the pharynx or, less often, the larynx. This case also demonstrates the utility of polysomnography in managing decannulation of tracheostomies. Read More

Management of complex benign post-tracheostomy tracheal stenosis with bronchoscopic insertion of silicon tracheal stents, in patients with failed or contraindicated surgical reconstruction of trachea.

J Thorac Dis 2012 Nov;4 Suppl 1:32-40

Cardiothoracic Department, St Luke's Hospital, Panorama, Thessaloniki, Greece;

Tracheal stenosis is a potentially life-threatening condition. Tracheostomy and endotracheal intubation remain the commonest causes of benign stenosis, despite improvements in design and management of tubes. Post-tracheostomy stenosis is more frequently encountered due to earlier performance of tracheostomy in the intensive care units, while the incidence of post-intubation stenosis has decreased with application of high-volume, low-pressure cuffs.
