Abstract

 Repeat Percutaneous Tracheostomy is Safe- A Retrospective Analysis of 15 Cases

We consider redo- percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy an option, despite previous percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy sometimes being considered a contraindication for a redo-procedure. Since data on this issue is limited, we analyzed our respective procedures for evaluation of this matter.

Keywords: Tracheostomy; Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy; Redoprocedure; Complications; Weaning
