Despite the risk of airway obstruction, tracheotomy has been viewed with trepidation in the management of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). The literature suggests that the injury associated with the tracheotomy site may initiate the progression of disease to the distal airway. Alternatively, patients who require tracheotomy for RRP may be predisposed to distal spread because of more aggressive disease. In an effort to clarify this issue, we reviewed the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh experience with 35 patients with RRP between 1984 and 1994; 13 patients received tracheotomies. Tracheotomy patients presented at a younger age with more widespread disease, often involving the distal airway prior to tracheotomy. Although distal spread occurred in 50% of patients, it was generally limited to the tracheotomy site. Overall, outcome in the tracheotomy group was satisfactory. Complications related to the tracheotomy were rare. We conclude that tracheotomy is an appropriate option for significantly airway compromise in patients with RRP.
