Bronchial stenosis may occur after bronchial wedge resections, sleeve resection, or lung transplantation. Treatments include surgical resection and reanastomosis, debridement by forceps, laser resection, balloon dilation, and stent placement. A case of debridement by forceps, laser resection, and stent placement for anastomotic stenosis after right upper wedge lobectomy is reported here.15 A 71-year-old man underwent right upper wedge lobectomy for squamous cell lung cancer. The bronchial anastomosis was performed with interrupted 3–0 absorbable sutures, and it was wrapped with an intercostal muscle flap. A few weeks after the surgery, bronchoscopy revealed local infection at the anastomotic site. Necrotic tissue at the anastomotic site was removed by biopsy forceps. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was detected in the bronchial lavage fluid, and vancomycin was given. Six months after surgery, bronchoscopy was done because of increased breathing difficulty, and severe anastomotic stricture was found. Figure 81-13A shows the stenosis of 2 mm and inflammatory granulation tissue. Three-dimensional CT scan revealed a serious anastomotic stenosis (Fig. 81-13B). Therefore, neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser resection for the inflammatory granulation was performed, and a self-expanding metallic stent (Ultraflex stent, Boston Scientific, Natick, MA) was placed successfully. Figure 81-13C,D shows the placed stent and widely opened anastomosis.
