Major airway surgery in children has traditionally consisted of a period of endotracheal intubation after the procedure for a period of 1-2 weeks to ensure stability of the repair. Recent literature has supported a trend toward decreasing this time period to prevent the consequences of leaving a foreign body in the airway and the morbidity associated with the use of sedation and narcotics in children. We present a series of five select children from our institution that underwent major tracheal surgery and were successfully extubated early in their postoperative course; four on postoperative day number 1. This demonstrates the feasibility of this approach in select patients.
