In this video we show the replacement of a Montgomery T tube in a patient with a tracheal stenosis. We remove the old tube, and we intubate the patient. We place a laryngoscope, and we explore the subglottis and trachea with an endoscope. We then ask the anesthesiologist to leave the patient in apnea and we remove the endotracheal tube and place the new Montgomery T tube. Next, we place a Fogarty catheter and we direct it upwards, we inflate the balloon so the anesthesiologist can ventilate the patient without air leak. As soon as the patient breathes spontaneously, the Fogarty is removed and the procedure is finished.
