Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A technique for internal fixation of a silicone elastomer tracheal stent is described. This technique allows the use of a short stent in situations where complex stent placement otherwise would be necessary. The procedure was used successfully to manage a postresection stricture in the subglottic trachea.
