The Montgomery T-tube tracheal stent.
The Montgomery T-tube is a valuable tracheal stent that provides a functional airway while supporting the tracheal mucosa. It is used in benign and malignant tracheal diseases and provides symptomatic relief to the majority of the patients. T-tubes are simple to insert and rarely cause serious complications. The use of T-tubes continues to gain popularity with the increasing incidence of benign trachea stenosis following the use of artificial airways. Physicians dealing with diseases of the airways should be familiar with the indications, contraindication, complications, and care of the Montgomery T-tubes.
