Minimally invasive surgery. Bedside tracheostomy and gastrostomy



Minimally invasive surgery. Bedside tracheostomy and gastrostomy



Critical Care Clinics 16(1): 113-130



Minimally invasive surgical techniques have gathered tremendous momentum. Most patient benefit is realized in the ambulatory setting. Smaller incisions result in less pain and earlier return to activities. Critically ill patients typically do not benefit from minimally invasive techniques in this manner; however, they do benefit from other aspects of minimally invasive tracheostomy and gastrostomy. Small tracheostomy wounds are associated with reduced wound problems (infection and breakdown). The small stab wounds of minimally invasive gastrostomy are associated with less pain and with an absence of fascial dehiscence. Furthermore, because these procedures are performed easily and safely at the bedside, transport and operating room costs are avoided. Although these procedures are minimally invasive, they are major procedures. Devastating complications can become life-threatening. Attention to detail is required to avoid or respond promptly to complications. In this way, patients receive maximal benefit at minimal risk.
