Percutaneous tracheostomy is a technique that, reputedly, is
simple to perform and causes few complications. It is routinely
used in intensive care. We present two patients with tracheal stenosis.
In one patient, we had to perform an anastomotic resection to cure the
patient; in the other patient, we had to place an endoluminal
conformer. To our knowledge, this complication has not been reported in
association with the use of this technique.
