Twenty-six infants and children underwent anterior cricoid split (ACS) in an attempt to avoid tracheotomy. Twenty (77%) were extubated successfully without tracheotomy;six (23%) failed and required tracheotomy. Our experience corroborates that reported in the literature. To date, 106 (77%) of 138 patients who have undergone ACS have been extubated successfully without tracheotomy. These results substantiate the validity of the operation when done for the proper indications. Substantive glottic and tracheal pathology indicate a high likelihood of failure of ACS.
