Except lor a lew cases of stent migration, no other complications after the use of the Dynamic airway stent (Rusch y-stent) have been reported. We describe a patient, in whom a spontaneous disintegration of the silicone-steel structure of the stent occurred, who coughed up two U-shaped steel struts. However, stent patency and function were preserved.
