Montgomery® Tracheal Fenestrator
The Montgomery® Tracheal Fenestrator is specifically designed to incise the correct size and shape opening for insertion of a Montgomery® Tracheal Cannula or standard tracheostomy tube. These precision instruments feature a serrated blade to penetrate both the tissue and cartilage. The fenestrator's inner cannula, connected to standard suction tubing, adheres the instrument to the desired location on the anterior tracheal wall while the knife is rotated to make the incision. The use of suction in this manner also prevents the patient from aspirating the incised tracheal core.
The fenestrator is available in four sizes: 4 (6.5 mm); 6 (8 mm); 8 (10 mm); and 10 (11 mm). The Montgomery® Tracheal Fenestrator Set includes all four sizes of the fenestrator housed in a convenient custom sterilization tray. Individual fenestrators are supplied sterile; the fenestrator set is supplied non-sterile, ready for your sterilization and include complete instructions. A video demonstrating the procedure is available from Boston Medical Products. Please call for details.
