The number of tracheotomies in Denmark has roughly tripled over the past 15 years. During this period, percutaneous dilatational tracheotomy has become still more common because of its easier accessibility, and it accounted for 66% of all tracheotomies in 2015 vs. 9% in 2000. However, due to the risk of fatal complications the method is only applicable when anatomical and medical conditions are favourable. Surgical tracheotomy is a safer method in some patients, and it is preferred if the patient has had a tracheostomy previously or presents with a difficult anatomy, coagulo­p­athy or previous neck irradiation.
