In this video we will show a classic technique for sealing an old tracheostoma that did not close spontaneously.

It is usually a surgery performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. It is generally divided into three layers: the skin around the tracheostomy, which will be the innermost layer, a layer of fat-fascia-muscle covering the previous suture, and finally, the skin.

There is usually no need to keep a drain after the surgery, and the results of the closure and the aesthetics are good.
