Abstract

Malignant central airway stenosis refers to airway stenosis caused by primary or metastatic malignant tumors which may lead to different levels of dyspnea or asphyxia in patients. With the rapid development of interventional pulmonology, therapeutic bronchoscopy has become one of the main methods for the diagnosis and treatment of malignant central airway stenosis. However, the level of diagnosis and treatment of respiratory intervention techniques in China is uneven at present, the treatment methods are not uniform, the treatment effects vary greatly, and some treatments even lead to serious complications. The interventional treatment technology for malignant central airway stenosis in China needs to be standardized. Therefore, the relevant experts of the Beijing Health Promotion Association Respiratory and Oncology Intervention and Treatment Alliance have formulated this consensus after several rounds of full discussion.
