PURPOSE: The Ciaglia percutaneous tracheostomy method has been in use since its inception in 1985, and percutaneous approaches to tracheostomies have become increasingly favored over surgical modalities because of risk of maceration, infection, prevention of routine maintenance, and skin irritation. This study investigates the effect of foregoing sutures on post-procedural complications of percutaneous tracheostomies.
