Esophageal stenting is a valuable treatment in the management of malignant dysphagia. Recently, self-expanding stents have proved effective in reducing morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the early and late results of esophageal stenting in a series of 160 consecutive unselected patients with unresectable esophageal and cardial carcinoma treated between November 1992 and December 1996.
