Abstract

Significant airway stenosis occurs in 7% to 14% of lung transplant recipients. The use of permanent, nonadjustable, wire mesh stents can be of concern in the transplant recipient with nonmalignant stricture. We report the replacement and repositioning of an expandable wire mesh stent in a double lung transplantation with distal bronchial stenosis.
