Palliation of Malignant Tracheal Conditions

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

Maninder Singh Kalkat of Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom, discusses palliative treatments for non-resectable tracheal tumors. The aims of palliation in these cases are to improve the patient’s ability to breath and prepare them for further non-surgical treatment. Mr. Kalkat describes and evaluates the current palliative options, including rigid bronchoscopy, dilation, laser treatment, and stents.
