Abstract

We describe a simple and secure technique for the insertion of a long Montgomery type T-tube in patients with tracheal stenosis. An endotracheal tube is placed into the lumen of the T-tube and by maintaining the airway during insertion, the technique has been found to be safe and it can prevent the kind of tracheal damage occurring with blind techniques.
