Airway stenosis is the most frequent airway complication in lung transplant recipients, and stent placement is the most frequently described treatment.2 Thus, posttransplant airway stenosis is one of the major indications for stent placement in benign diseases. Despite the benign nature of airway stenosis, metallic stents rather than silicone stents have been used more frequently3,4 because of the ease of stent placement.4 The significant limitation of metallic stents is the difficulty of removal, especially for stents left in place for a long time.3 Late complications associated with metallic stent implantation, including restenosis, frequently occur and often require stent removal. In a large retrospective study of 65 recipients with metallic stent implantation, the frequency of restenosis was reported to be 52%.3 Furthermore, the need for the stent is often temporary rather than permanent. In the studies on silicone stent placement for posttransplant airway stenosis, the reported success rate of stent removal without recurrence of airway stenosis ranged from 70% to 80%.4,5 Thus, silicone stents, which can be removed easily, are preferred for the management of posttransplant airway stenosis. In lung transplant recipients, the bronchus intermedius often is involved3,4 because an anastomotic stenosis extends or a nonanastomotic distal bronchial stenosis occurs. For treatment using a silicone stent in such cases, a window method traditionally has been used in which an opening is punched out in the silicone straight stent wall so that ventilation is not prevented in the upper lobe.4 However, the window method has some drawbacks. There is a discrepancy in size between the right main stem bronchus and the bronchus intermedius, so the silicone straight stent may not fit well. This may lead to migration or excessive granulation tissue formation. Furthermore, the window method is useless for right upper lobe stenosis, which occasionally occurs in lung transplant recipients.2,4 The Oki stent was designed to adapt to the anatomic structure of right bronchi and, thus, seems especially suitable.
