Abstract

Pulmonary artery stenosis is an uncommon complication of fibrosing mediastinitis. Previous medical and surgical therapies have provided limited clinical efficacy without objective evidence of clinical improvement. With the advantages of limited invasiveness and absent need for prolonged drug therapy, percutaneous stent deployment to relieve pulmonary artery obstruction represents a novel treatment for this rare disorder.
