Abstract

Virtual planning of the tracheostomy did not correlate with actual cannula position. Identifying patients with abnormal airway anatomy in whom commercially available cannula cannot be optimally positioned is advantageous. Patient-specific cannula design based on 3D virtualization of the airway was beneficial in a patient with abnormal airway anatomy.
