Fractured Tracheostomy Tubes into the Tracheobronchial Tree

Dr. Sihem Madi | Dr Zoheir Kermezli [2]

Abstract: The tracheostomy technique is a traditional life-supporting airway procedure. While there are documented early and late problems with this treatment, it is generally considered healthy. A tracheostomy tube fracture and subsequent aspiration in the tracheobronchial tree is a rare late condition that may be fatal. A broken tracheostomy tube presenting as a foreign body in the tracheobronchial tree has only been recorded in a few cases. The trachea and right main bronchus were the most often identified dislodged areas, and our patient's inner flange was stuck in the trachea and left main bronchus. Foreign-body aspiration is a critical medical emergency that necessitates immediate recognition and treatment, which our patient received successfully. The most common procedure is therapeutic rigid bronchoscopic removal. A regular examination of tracheostomy treatment procedures, as well as prompt checks for symptoms of wear and tear, could be able to prevent such avoidable late complications.
