A 64-year-old man, who had received chemoradiation therapy for stage IIIB non-small-cell lung cancer, underwent stent insertion with a covered expandable metallic stent for post-radiation bronchial stenosis. Stenosis due to formation of granulation tissue at the distal stent site resulted in critical respiratory failure. The stent was removed after 43 months, using rigid bronchoscopy.
