Rigid endotracheal tube stabilization during craniomaxillofacial surgery.

Abstract

Effective stabilization of the endotracheal tube is required for safety when performing surgery in the craniomaxillofacial region. We describe a simple technique for rigid stabilization of the airway, which has been used in over 150 patients without complication.
