The pediatric and neonatal tracheotomies done on our patients at Children's Memorial Hospital since 1975 have been reviewed. Patients’ ages, birth weights, rates of complications, decannulations and deaths have been studied. As compared to previous studies, the proportion of procedures done on children in the first year of life has dramatically increased. A technique which has been modified for the small infant is described.
