Figure 2: Representative case of post-tuberculosis bronchial stenosis. (a) On chest computed tomography scan, the left main bronchus was narrowed to approximately 2 mm in diameter (black arrow), whereas the right main bronchus showed normal airway patency (white arrow). (b) On bronchoscopy, the left main bronchus was partially obstructed by fibrotic stenosis. (c) After mechanical dilatation, a silicone bronchial stent was inserted into the left main bronchus (inner diameter 9 mm, outer diameter 10 mm, stent length 40 mm). (d) Twenty months after silicone stenting, elective stent removal was performed
