Use of the fibreoptic intubating LMA-CTrach in two patients with difficult airways

, : Use of the fibreoptic intubating LMA-CTrach in two patients with difficult airways. Anaesthesia 61(6): 601-603

We report two patients with difficult airways who underwent tracheal intubation using the new fibreoptic intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway CTrach. The imaging technology of the LMA-CTrach was decisive in the management of these two patients. The first patient had lingual tonsillar hyperplasia, and an omega-shaped retroflexed epiglottis. The second patient had a C2-occipital fusion and was completely unable to extend her head. Given the anatomical difficulties encountered, it was likely that intubation would have been difficult or impossible through the LMA-Fastrach. The aim of this report is to describe the successful use of this new intubating laryngeal mask airway in these two challenging patients.
