Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report six patients with unexpected difficult airways who underwent tracheal intubation using the Laryngeal Mask Airway CTrach. All these patients had failed orotracheal intubation using direct laryngoscopy and gum elastic bougie placement. Fibreoptic bronchoscopy failed in two of these patients due to blood and secretions in the airway. This report describes the successful use of this new intubating laryngeal mask in these cases, all of whom were intubated on the first attempt with this new device.
