Abstract

A low-lying tracheostomy can complicate a sternotomy for coronary artery bypass grafting. A modified "T" exposure, transecting the manubrium at the first intercostal space, can be utilized to maintain sternoclavicular architecture and avoid injury to the tracheostomy at the sternal notch.
