The airway management of a patient with severe tracheal stenosis depends on its severity, length, location, and type of surgery. Its management is complex and requires the collaboration of an experienced team of anaesthetist and ear, nose, and throat surgeon. We report an innovative combination of Ventrain™ and S-Guide™ for airway management of a planned endoscopic dilation of a severe subglottic stenosis in an adult patient. This new alternative may offer advantages over existing airway management techniques in similar cases.
