Article: Tuberculous tracheobronchial stricture causing post-pneumonectomy-like syndrome corrected by insertion of a bespoke Dumon stent.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Post-pneumonectomy syndrome is a well-recognised but uncommon late complication of pneumonectomy. Usually occurring after right-sided surgery, the mediastinal contents are rotated and displaced into the right hemithorax, producing airways or oesophageal compression. We report a case in which the radiological features and symptoms of post-pneumonectomy syndrome appeared to be precipitated by the development of a complex tuberculous tracheobronchial stenosis that resolved after the insertion of a bespoke Dumon stent.Interactive cardiovascular and thoracic surgery 05/2008; 7(2):267-8.
