Pediatric tracheotomy.


The indications and complications of tracheotomy in 93 children between 1970-82 were studied and recorded. There has clearly been a shift in indications for pediatric tracheotomy while the early postoperative complication rate has improved. Longterm tracheotomy is on the increase due to a larger number of children with neurological problems and of infants requiring tracheotomy for chronic obstructive airway disease.
