Assess the safety and feasibility of local oncological drug delivery into the bronchial wall after recanalization of subjects with malignant airway obstruction. Safety and feasibility (technical success) will be assessed.

This localized delivery is intended as an adjunct therapy and all subjects will receive standard of care oncology therapy as determined by their treating physicians.

Malignant Airway Obstruction Secondary to Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: Paclitaxel

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

  • Concurrent participation in another study involving investigational drugs or investigational medical devices
  • Other (non-cancer) disease not stabilized within 1 month before the Screening Visit
  • Known hypersensitivity to paclitaxel, Cremophor EL, or iodinated contrast media
  • Any serious, uncontrolled comorbidity or condition that an Investigator believes would interfere with the intent of the study or would make participation not in the best interest of the patient Intraoperative Exclusion Criteria
  • Use of pulmonary airway stents and/or ongoing or initiation of local external beam or brachytherapy radiation
  • Any intraoperative complications that per the investigator's judgment increase the risk to the patient.
