Stent placement has become common practice for bronchial stenosis (BS) after lung transplantation (LT). Especially, segmental BS after lobar LT requires a complex stenting technique. We describe a case of multiple segmental bronchial stenoses treated by the kissing-stents technique using balloon-expandable metallic stents after living-donor lobar LT. Based on the vascular kissing-stents technique, we simultaneously placed two stents, side by side, in the superior segmental bronchus and the basal segmental bronchus of the right transplanted lobar lung. This technique may represent a valuable option for complex segmental BS after lobar LT.
