Decannulation after tracheotomy done for papillomata

should be deferred at least 6 months after the discontinuance of

recurrence. Not uncommonly the operative treatment of the growths has

been so mistakenly radical as to result in cicatricial or ankylotic

stenoses which require their appropriate treatments. It is the

author's opinion that recurrent papillomata constitute a benign

self-limited disease and are best treated by repeated superficial

removals, leaving the underlying normal structures uninjured. This

method will yield ultimately a perfect voice and will avoid the

unfortunate complications of cicatricial hypertrophic and ankylotic

stenosis.
