Endotracheal intubation through laryngeal Ambu® Auragain™ mask airway mask in paediatric patients affected by congenital infiltrating lipomatosis



Endotracheal intubation through laryngeal Ambu® Auragain™ mask airway mask in paediatric patients affected by congenital infiltrating lipomatosis



Revista Espanola de Anestesiologia y Reanimacion 66(4): 222-225



Congenital defects that affect paediatric airway could lead to several difficulties for effective ventilation, intubation, or even both, increasing the risk of hypoxaemia. It is essential for the paediatric anaesthesiologist to have accurate knowledge of the anatomy of patient́s airway, as well as judicious preoperative planning. Increasingly, more devices have been designed for the control of difficult airway in the paediatric patient. This case report describes the application of a third-generation laryngeal mask (- Ambu® Auragain ™) for endotracheal intubation of a child with anticipated difficult airway, secondary to congenital diffuse infiltrating facial lipomatosis.
