Stents, Tracheal, Metallic

Definition : Tracheal stents manufactured from metallic alloys, such as stainless steel, platinum, or nickel titanium alloys (e.g., nitinol). These devices typically consist of a metallic (e.g., meshlike wire) tube, and some include a plastic cover. Tracheal metallic stents may be either balloon expandable or self-expandable. They are permanent devices typically deployed under local anesthetics using flexible bronchoscopes; they are used to treat stenosis caused by injuries, benign diseases, or malignant tumors.
