abstract

  • The accumulated and evaluated evidence suggests that SARTI probably involves 1 in 5 patients with airway stent. Although the possibility of SARTI should not discourage the interventional pneumologists from inserting airway stents, the data seem to underline the urgent need for establishing a consensus definition and diagnostic criteria for SARTI.
