We present a novel technique for securing an endotracheal tube after using a #1 Classic laryngeal mask airway (LMA) as a conduit for intubating the trachea of a premature infant. During induction of anesthesia for inguinal hernia repair in an ex- 23-week infant, an unanticipated difficult airway was encountered. After several unsuccessful attempts of intubating via direct laryngoscopy, we placed the endotracheal tube (ETT) into the trachea using a fiberoptic bronchoscope through a #1 LMA. A… Expand
