A comparison of a flexometallic tracheal tube with the intubating laryngeal mask tracheal tube for nasotracheal fibreoptic intubation using the two-scope technique.

Abstract:

We compared the incidence and site of impingement of a flexometallic tracheal tube with those of the re-usable intubating laryngeal mask (ILMA) tube in 60 anaesthetised patients undergoing nasotracheal fibreoptic intubation for oral surgery. A two-scope technique was used, observing the site of impingement with one scope whilst intubating with the other. The tubes were 6.0-mm in females and 6.5-mm in males. Impingement occurred with 10 (33%) flexometallic and 2 (7%) ILMA tubes (p < 0.032)....
