    Percutaneous Tracheostomy: A Comprehensive Evaluation

    Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 108: 384-391, 1999

         


    This an ancient procedure of percutaneous trachaostomy (PT). International literature is reviewed.

          


    1500 cases were analysed. Among currently available instruments, the safest was the Cook Kit. PT done with correct instruments under bronchoscopic surveillance produced least complication rate. With detailed anatomical and physiological knowledge of upper airway, perhaps surgeons with extensive experience in the management of upper airway, are best suited to carry out PT.
