Two strategies were used: ablative techniques and stent placement. In a total of 1,115 procedures, 1,836 individual treatment modalities were used—an average of 1.6 modalities per procedure. It is unclear which combinations of modalities were used and why. While stent placement is the only bronchoscopic intervention available for extraluminal obstruction, for intraluminal and mixed obstruction, the best strategy is less clear.2 Is technical success with ablative therapy enough, or should ablation be followed by stent deployment to maintain patency? Unfortunately, the current report does not answer this question.
