Description
A 81-year-old man came to our hospital with abnormal shadow on chest X-ray and was diagnosed as non-small cell lung cancer. The cancer became small,so we observed for a while, but the cancer enlarged and dysphagia was observed. Chest CT revealed an enlargement of subcarinal lymph node metastasis and stenosis of esophagus and left main bronchus. Therefore, we placed stents on esophagus and left main bronchus and he left hospital. After that, he underwent outpatient chemotherapy, but he had severe dyspnea and immediately hospitalized. Chest CT revealed stenoses of bilateral main bronchus due to enlargement of subcarinal lymph node. The stenosis of left main bronchus was severe, so we placed a stent on left main bronchus again and at the same time, he underwent radiation therapy against the enlargement of lymph node. After he finished radiation therapy, the size of subcarinal lymph node became small, so we placed a stent on right main bronchus. After that, his symptom of dyspnea was improved markedly.
For stenoses of esophagus and tracheobronchus, double and multiple stentings considering patient’s disease state and complications of stentings are effective treatment to improve quality of life.
