Leow et al. Intubation with a TriTube to avoid peri-operative tracheostomy in open airway surgery. The Journal of Laryngology & Otology 2022

In this case report, the authors describe the use of Tritube and Evone to facilitate local resection of a laryngeal chondrosarcoma through an anterior laryngofissure. Upon safe intubation of Tritube past the major intralaryngeal obstruction, FCV using Evone was applied throughout the procedure. While adequate respiratory parameters were maintained, the small outer diameter of Tritube provided unhampered surgical access and good surgical conditions. Thus, Tritube and Evone avoided the need for a peri-operative tracheostomy, thereby also decreasing the risk of post-operative discomfort for the patient.
