The airway management of a patient with a severe tracheal stenosis depends upon its severity, length, location and the type of surgery. Its management is complex and requires collaboration of an experienced team of anaesthetist and ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgeon.
We report an innovative combination of the VentrainTM and the S-GuideTM for the 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.
