INTRODUCTION: Excessive dynamic airway collapse (EDAC) refers to excessive bulging of the posterior wall of trachea during exhalation causing reduction in lumen by more than 50%. Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation is an effective treatment option. Airway stents have also been used to treat EDAC but are associated with variety of complications such as migration, granulation tissue, infection, retained secretions and obstruction. We describe a patient who developed all such complications after silicone stent placement.
