The Wallstent I and II esophageal endoprostheses are effective in the palliation of malignant esophageal obstruction and the closure of digestive-respiratory fistulas. The author reviews the evolution of the Wallstent esophageal endoprosthesis and techniques for successful insertion, and summarizes the published literature with regard to clinical outcomes of the European and American Wallstent designs.
