Nasopharyngeal Stents

March 31st, 2020

When placing a stent for nasopharyngeal stenosis, the following potential complications need to be considered:

  • Formation of excessive granulation tissue
  • Hairball entrapment
  • Tissue ingrowth
  • Stent compression
  • Oronasal fistula development
  • Chronic infections
  • Dysphagia

If you have a case of nasopharyngeal stenosis, please contact the NVS internal medicine service to see if your patient is a candidate for stent placement
