    The steps involved in the placement of a stent
     

    A plain radiograph showing a focal stenosis at the trachea.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    The stenotic segment being dilated with a balloon catheter.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    The stent being placed at the stenotic trachea. Note an hourglass deformity of the stent from the stenosis.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    The stent being fully expanded without migration, one week after the placement.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    The stent being retrieved with a hook wire 6 months after the placement. Note a collapsed proximal segment of the tracheal stent during removal of the stent.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    A plain radiogram obtained 4 months after the stent removal showing the well-expanded previous tracheal stenosis.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: The steps of the stent placement;

    Endoscopic photograms obtained before and after stent placement
     

    A photogram showing a severe concentric stenosis at the trachea.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Endoscopic photograms obtained before and after stent placement;

    A photogram obtained 1 month after the stent placement showing the fully expanded trachea. Note the stent placed with a drawstring.
