Abstract

We report the use of a Dacron-covered Gianturco-Rösch Z (GRZ)-stent to treat malignant obstruction of the superior vena cava (SVC). Initial treatment with an uncovered GRZ-stent was suboptimal due to protrusion of tumor-thrombus through the stent struts into the SVC lumen. Placement of a coaxial Dacron-covered stent graft relieved the residual obstruction due to tumor within the SVC.
