Abstract: An investigation into improving tracheostoma closure using the alloplastic method is conducted. The developed technique for tracheostoma closure is described in this study (RF Patent No. 2 472 455). The results of surgical treatment of patients with tracheal stenosis during the period of 2001–2011 are presented. The proposed technique for tracheostoma closure is evaluated. The proposed method for tracheostoma closure in patients with tracheal stenosis prevents narrowing of the tracheal lumen and ensures tight tracheostoma closure.
