This non-randomised retrospective study compares percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy with standard operative tracheostomy performed in intensive care units.
Ilhan Ozdemir State Hospital, Giresun, Turkey, between October 2013 and February 2014, and comprised patients greater than 18 years of age who were dependent on mechanical ventilation for an extended duration and were scheduled to undergo percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy with Griggs technique.
The spherical stretch strain is the bond's normal strain owing to spherical dilatational deformation, the deviatoric stretch strain is the bond's normal strain owing to the deviatoric deformation and the shear strain is the bond's tangential strain due to the whole deformation.
6] So-called noncompliant balloons were exclusively used in our study; they are characterised by the fact that they only change their diameter minimally upon dilatational pressure and therefore minimise the risk of overexpansion.
