Metallic wire expandable stents are increasingly used to alleviate tracheal obstruction due to malignancies. Patients usually tolerate these stents well and benefit from good to excellent palliation of their symptoms. Nevertheless, some miserable complications have also come to our notice. We report here an unfortunate case in whom severe bilateral main bronchial obstruction occurred immediately after the insertion of a Wall-stent over the tracheal stenosis.
