PURPOSE: Patients with severe symptomatic expiratory central airway collapse (ECAC) usually undergo a short-term silicone stent trial to determine whether they are candidates for surgical airway stabilization. Previous trials used a mixture of bronchial and bifurcated silicone stents with inconsistent outcomes due to long duration of stent placement and stent related complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of short-term bifurcated silicone stents (Y-stent) in patients with ECAC using a standard protocol.
