In patients with bronchogenic carcinoma, when the tumour is occupying and obstructing the passage of air resulting in breathlessness, after debulking the tumour with LASER a stent is placed to keep the passage patent. This is a self expandable metallic stent which is placed under local anaesthesia during flexible bronchoscopy and provides instant relief to the patient.
