Laryngotracheal stenosis is a recognized complication of local injuries, such as prolonged intubation. Surgical reconstruction with the use of a tracheal T‐tube is widely recommended. We report a serious complication consisting of the sudden obstruction of the T‐tube by viscous secretions. In order to prevent this undesirable consequence, a simple modification of the T‐tube technique is proposed.
