Dulguerov et al. Systematic review of tracheostomy technique. CCM 1999

Created: 16/5/2007
 

Paper type

Systematic review and meta-analysis

Reference

Dulguerov P, Gysin C, Perneger TV, Chevrolet JC.
Percutaneous or surgical tracheostomy: a meta-analysis.
Critical Care Medicine 1999; 27: 1617-1625.


Major Finding

Percutaneous tracheostomy is associated with a higher prevalence of perioperative complications and, especially, perioperative deaths and cardiorespiratory arrests. Postoperative complication rates are higher with surgical tracheostomy.

Point for discussion:

Would the same conclusions be made if bronchoscopic guidance was used to assist the percutaneous tracheostomies?
