Despite its size, the Stening® Y stent are well-tolerated. However, its larger length increases the difficulty of getting rid of secretions, and even more when the cough is not effective. Perform nebulisations frequently and if you notice an increase on bronchial secretions attend your kinesiologist daily.
The appearance of excessive cough may suggest an unwanted touch of only one or both stent bronchial branches with the inflamed bronchial mucosa. If the symptom persists or becomes irrepressible in spite of the anti-inflammatory treatment, removing the stent may be necessary and then introduce a new one with the bronchial branches length shortened.
Take care of your oral hygiene and treat cavities.
