Abstract

Self expandable esophageal prosthesis today represent an effective palliative treatment in esophageal cancer and in cases of stenosis or fistula into the trachea or in the mediastinum, with a limited number of complications. Covered metal ones are preferable, while the plastic stents present a more difficult position and higher incidence of migration. Results in benign stenosis are less successful: their use is recommended only in selected cases. Further long-term prospective data are awaited before biodegradable stents can be recommended for the management of benign esophageal lesions.
