Abstract

Although rigid bronchoscopy is the procedure of choice for interventional procedures of the proximal airway, flexible bronchoscopy can be used when lesions are not accessible by rigid equipment. We present an adolescent patient with tracheal stenosis whose airway was inaccessible through rigid bronchoscopy and thus required flexible bronchoscopy for all therapeutic procedures, including a stent placement. In addition, we describe our use of impulse oscillometry to monitor stent patency.
