Hasan Ali Karimpour, Kamran Vafaii, Maryam Chalechale, Saeed Mohammadi, Rasool Kaviannezhad
BACKGROUND: Tracheostomy is considered the airway management of choice for patients who need prolonged mechanical ventilation support. Percutaneous Dilatational Tracheotomy (PDT) is a technique that can be performed easily and rapidly at bedside and is particularly useful in the intensive care setting. The Griggs percutaneous tracheotomy is unique in its utilization of a guide wire dilator forceps. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to describe the early perioperative and late postoperative complications of PDT using the Griggs technique in patients in the intensive care unit (ICU)...

Percutaneous tracheostomy is a minimally invasive operation performed in patients, in order to provide an air passage through the windpipe. A rare cause of severe bleeding during such operation is the injury of the thyroidea-ima artery. This case report presents a patient with hemorrhage after thyroidea-ima injury during percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy. Surgeons should always be aware of such anatomic variation, in order to prevent urgent sternotomy.

Tracheostomy is performed in patients who require prolonged mechanical ventilation or have upper airway instability. Percutaneous tracheostomy with Ciaglia technique is commonly used and rivals the surgical approach. Percutaneous technique is associated with decreased risk of stomal inflammation, infection, and bleeding along with reduction in health resource utilization when performed at bedside. Bronchoscopy and ultrasound guidance improve the safety of percutaneous tracheostomy. Early tracheostomy decreases the need for sedation and intensive care unit stay but may be unnecessary in some patients who can be extubated later successfully...

PURPOSE: Few guidelines exist regarding the selection of a particular type or size of tracheostomy tube. Although nonstandard tubes can be placed over the percutaneous kit dilator, clinicians often place standard tracheostomy tubes and change to nonstandard tubes only after problems arise. This practice risks early tracheostomy tube change, possible bleeding, or loss of the airway. We sought to identify predictors of nonstandard tracheostomy tubes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this matched case-control study at an urban, academic, tertiary care medical center, we reviewed 1220 records of patients who received a tracheostomy...

Over the last decade the number of heart transplantations declined and the number of implanted left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) markedly increased. Accordingly, common intensive care interventions rise and present their own challenges, especially due to the necessary anticoagulation regimen. One of these procedures is percutaneous dilatation tracheostomy (PDT). We herein report our experience with 34 patients with LVAD and established phrenprocoumon therapy (INR 2.1 ± 0.9, PTT 68.9 ± 19.0 sec...

BACKGROUND: Tracheostomy formation is one of the most commonly performed surgical procedures in critically ill intensive care participants requiring long-term mechanical ventilation. Both surgical tracheostomies (STs) and percutaneous tracheostomies (PTs) are used in current surgical practice; but until now, the optimal method of performing tracheostomies in critically ill participants remains unclear. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the effectiveness and safety of percutaneous techniques compared to surgical techniques commonly used for elective tracheostomy in critically ill participants (adults and children) to assess whether there was a difference in complication rates between the procedures...

When first introduced, percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) was performed using a bronchoscope. The bronchoscope itself, however, has several disadvantages, including interruption of ventilation. Modifications of the standard PDT technique have suggested that PDT can be safely performed without a bronchoscope. However, the safety of these modifications is unclear and many modifications have yet to be widely adopted. This study retrospectively evaluated the safety of a simplified PDT technique using the Cook® Ciaglia Blue Rhino™ in 186 patients...

PURPOSE: Submental intubation is widely accepted as a safe and effective alternative to nasal intubation or tracheostomy in head and neck surgery patients. Forceful or careless technique can cause significant bleeding and trauma to the soft tissues at this point, increasing the likelihood of troublesome sublingual haematoma. METHODS: We describe the use of a percutaneous tracheostomy horn (Cook Medical Blue Rhino(®)) to allow minimally traumatic submental intubation without the need for serial dilations...

BACKGROUND: In the setting of critical care, the most common indications for tracheostomy include: prolonged intubation, to facilitate weaning from mechanical ventilation, and for pulmonary toileting. In this setting, tracheostomy can be performed either via open surgical or percutaneous technique. Advantages for percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) include: simplicity, smaller incision, less tissue trauma, lower incidence of wound infection, lower incidence of peristomal bleeding, decreased morbidity from patient transfer, and cost-effectiveness...

A 50-year-old woman was admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) for a life-threatening exacerbation of asthma requiring intubation and ventilation for 7 days. On day 8, she was stepped down from the ventilator via the insertion of a tracheostomy to aid weaning. It was initially decided that a percutaneous tracheostomy would be attempted on ICU, however, following further consideration, it was decided that due to anatomical factors (short neck) a surgical tracheostomy would be performed by the ear, nose and throat (ENT) team...

Bleeding complications after percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) are infrequent but may have a tremendous impact on a patient's further clinical course. Therefore, it seems necessary to perform risk stratification for patients scheduled for PDT. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 1001 patients (46% male, mean age 68.1 years) undergoing PDT (using the Ciaglia Blue Rhino® technique with direct bronchoscopic guidance) in our cardiothoracic ICU between January 2003 and February 2013. Patients were stratified into two groups: patients suffering acute moderate, severe, or major bleeding (Group A) and patients who had no or only mild bleeding (Group B)...

BACKGROUND: Transoral, minimally invasive, organ preservation surgeries are increasingly used to treat laryngopharyngeal carcinomas to avoid the toxicity associated with combined chemoradiotherapy regimens. This study investigated the efficiency, safety, and functional outcomes of using transoral robotic surgery (TORS) to perform supraglottic laryngectomy (SGL). METHODS: This was a multicenter study using a case series with planned data collection from 2009 to 2012 for patients with supraglottic squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) who underwent SGL using TORS...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is the standard airway access in critically ill patients who require prolonged mechanical ventilation. However, the literature lacks reports about the effectiveness and safety of this procedure in thoracic organ transplant recipients, who have increased risks of bleeding and infection. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of subjects who underwent thoracic organ transplantation at our institution between January 2004 and March 2011 followed by PDT (using the Ciaglia Blue Rhino technique with direct bronchoscopic guidance)...

Although percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is more accessible and less time-demanding compared with surgical tracheostomy (ST), it has its own limitations. We introduced a modified PDT technique and brought some surgical knowledge to the bedside to overcome some standard percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy relative contraindications. PDT uses a blind route of tracheal access that usually requires perioperational imaging guidance to protect accidental injuries. Moreover, there are contraindications in certain cases, limiting widespread PDT application...

OBJECTIVES: The prevalence and impact of longer-term outcomes following percutaneous tracheostomy, particularly tracheal stenosis, are unclear. Previous meta-analyses addressing this problem have been confounded by the low prevalence of tracheal stenosis and a limited number of studies. DESIGN: Embase, PubMed-Medline, and the Cochrane Central Register of Clinical Trials were searched to identify all prospective studies of tracheostomy insertion in the critically ill...

BACKGROUND: We describe a modified technique for percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) using intermittent bronchoscopy and ultrasound (US). This method requires 1 single physician operator and no special airway adjuncts. Our aim is to reduce the complications associated with the current popular PDT technique, that is, accidental intraprocedural airway loss, intraprocedural bleeding, and hypoventilation associated with use of continuous bronchoscopy. STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective review of all PDTs performed on intensive care unit patients at a single nonacademic hospital by a pulmonologist using the modified PDT technique...

OBJECTIVE: The pre- and postoperative airway management during surgery of head and neck cancer is a clinically relevant and challenging task. Usually an epithelialised tracheostomy is used. The significance of percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) in combination with tumour surgery of the head neck area has not yet been fully considered. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Within a surgical therapy of head neck tumours, 58 patients were treated with a PDT by Ciaglia or Fantoni at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Martin-Luther-University Halle during the period from December 2002 to October 2007...

PURPOSE: Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is a standard procedure routinely performed on intensive care units. While complication rates and long-term outcomes have been studied in different patient populations, there are few studies known to these authors involving PDT in trauma patients and the complications which may result. METHODS: Between March 2007 and August 2013, all instances and peri-procedural complications during PDT occurring on the trauma intensive care unit, a unit specialized in the care of injured patients and especially polytrauma patients, were documented...
