Abstract

Stenting is an established palliative procedure for critical tumor obstruction of the airway. However, it is available in few tertiary referral centers. Occasionally, emergency insertion of a tracheal stent is indicated for impending asphyxia. A 60-year-old man with critical tumor stenosis of lower trachea presenting at a time when a dedicated airway stent was unavailable. A reinforced endotracheal tube passed through a tracheostomy functioned as an interval tracheal stent till it was replaced by a dedicated self-expanding stent. If a dedicated stent is not immediately available, a reinforced endotracheal tube may be inserted as an interval stent in the occasional patient presenting with life-threatening tumor stenosis of trachea.
