The complication rate was 83% under ' 1 year of age and between the age of 1 and 5 years, the complication rate was 59%. 3. The most common indication, for tracheostomy was laryngotracheobronchitis, followed by acute diphtheric laryngitis and epiglottitis. 4. The most frequent complication, delayed decannulation occured in 59% of the cases followed. by tracheal stenosis and pneumothorax in that order. 5. The complication rate was directely proportioned to the duration o£ time prior to removal of the cannule. No complication occured when the cannule was removed within 3 days, whereas 15 cases, sustained complications after 7 days. 6. Among 17 cases of complications, death occured in 7 cases including 5 cases due to serious primary disease rather than the tracheostomy itself.
