Montgomery® Tracheal Cannula

Montgomery® Tracheal Cannula

The patented Montgomery® Tracheal Cannula System is designed to give the surgeon a complete programme for creating a secondary airway — from initial incision through long-term tracheostomy care. Used in place of tracheostomy tubes, the system provides long-term access to the tracheal airway in situations that require an artificial airway or where access is needed for pulmonary hygiene.

The uniquely designed thin inner flange of the cannula is shaped to fit snugly against the contour of the inner anterior tracheal wall. No tube projects into the tracheal lumen. All tracheal cannulas are made of flexible implant grade silicone to assure patient comfort and safety while reducing complications.

The Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula, used to replace either the Short-Term Cannula or a standard tracheostomy tube, is designed with a highly polished shaft — an exclusive feature that encourages the growth of epithelium to create a smooth stoma. Cannula diameters correspond to standard tracheostomy tube sizes. The stoma length in millimeters is measured along the inferior aspect of the stoma to determine the cannula model.

Montgomery® Short-Term Cannula

The Montgomery® Short-Term Cannula is designed for use with an initial tracheotomy. Use of the Montgomery® Tracheal Fenestrator to create the incision is recommended to ensure a precise fit of the cannula in the anterior tracheal wall.

A procedural video detailing the use of the tracheal fenestrator and insertion of the short-term cannula is available. Following the fenestration and insertion procedure, the Short-Term Cannula can be left in place for several weeks and should then be replaced by the Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula to establish a long-term stoma. Each Short-Term Cannula Set includes the tube, one faceplate, one plug/ring set, and product information. Also available are 15 mm adaptors, and additional faceplates and plug/ring sets. Refer to chart below for corresponding product codes.

Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula

The patented Montgomery® Long-Term Cannula is the result of many years of clinical research and design. Used to replace either the Short-Term Cannula or a standard tracheostomy tube, the cannula features a 27°-angled flange to ensure that the tube rests horizontally when seated in the trachea - nothing protrudes into the trachea.

Made from flexible Implant grade silicone, the tube has a highly polished surface that permits and encourages growth of epithelium between the trachea and the skin. Once inserted, a ring washer is applied, ensuring patient safety. The tube can be trimmed to a low profile. A dual-purpose groove along the axis of the tube rests in the “6 o’clock” position for orientation and serves as a drainage vent.

Long-Term Cannula diameters correspond to standard tracheostomy tube sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10. The stoma length in millimeters is measured along the inferior aspect of the stoma from the anterior tracheal wall to the outside skin. These measurements are made easily using the STOMEASURE™. There are 24 sizes of Long-Term Cannula to choose from. Each Long-Term Cannula includes the tube, two plug/ring sets, and product information. Also available are 15mm adaptors and additional plug/ring sets. Refer to chart below for corresponding product codes.
