Pediatric Tracheostomy with Maturation Sutures

Procedure: This video demonstrates the operative method of pediatric tracheostomy with maturation sutures of the tracheocutaneous fistula tract. Introduction: Pediatric tracheostomy provides an alternate airway. Indications: This procedure is done to alleviate upper airway obstruction, facilitate prolonged mechanical ventilation, or pulmonary toilet. Contraindications: There are no absolute contraindications to this procedure, however, like any procedure, it has recognized possible risks. Conclusion: Pediatric tracheostomy with maturation sutures provides an alternate airway to bypass obstruction, facilitate long term ventilation, or pulmonary toilet.
