Abstract: 

Methods of opening the airways like tracheostomy are used to provide appropriate ventilation for patients with upper airway problems. Tracheostomy may be accompanied by some complications. In the present study, we reported a 41- year-old man with progressive dyspnea and cyanosis induced by fracture of tracheostomy tube. He referred to our center and a chest x-ray was obtained showing fracture of tracheostomy tube within trachea. He underwent surgery and fractured tracheostomy was removed/ extracted. A plastic tracheostomy tube was placed for him and he discharged the day after.
Conclusion: Fracture and aspiration of tracheostomy tube is a rare complication which requires a prompt and precise management. Patient education regarding the maintenance of tracheostomy tube for prevention of this complication is highly recommended.
