Large Iatrogenic Tracheal Injury From Attempted Endotracheal Cuff Leak Remedy: A Case Report.

Abstract

Continuous insufflation of oxygen into the pilot balloon of an endotracheal tube has been documented as a viable method to fix an incompetent endotracheal tube cuff. We present a case of a large iatrogenic tracheal injury resulting from an improvised cuff leak management device. Valuable lessons are discussed to prevent similar incidents.
