Granuloma associated with fenestrated tracheostomy tubes.


Four cases of granuloma that caused tracheal obstruction have been presented. In each, although for different reasons, a tracheostomy was performed and a fenestrated tube inserted. We conclude that the insertion of a fenestrated tube was the direct cause of the excessive amount of granuloma that caused tracheal obstruction.
