Conclusions The AuraGain had a significantly lower first attempt success rate at blind tracheal intubation compared with the LMA Fastrach, although there was no significant difference in overall success after 3 attempts. Intubating through the AuraGain was also deemed to be more difficult by novice users than the LMA Fastrach. Further clinical studies are required to evaluate blind intubation through the AuraGain.

ConclusionEstablishment of effective airway ventilation in patients with severe tracheal stenosis should be based on the cause, location, and severity of tracheal narrowing. Veno‐ arterial ECMO may be considered in patients with severe stenosis, if they are judged unable to tolerate conventional ventilation or jet ventilation.

Uvular necrosis or ulceration is a rare cause of post-operative sore throat after endotracheal intubation (40%) or Laryngeal Mask Airway (7 –12%) insertion. Till date, only 17 cases of uvular necrosis have been reported. According to literature, overzealous suctioning, upper GI endoscopy, bronchoscopy via nasal approach, long-term intubation and trans-esophageal echocardiography can cause uvular necrosis (2, 3). Patients present with post-operative severe pain and swollen, elongated, erythematous uvula with odynophagia and dysphagia which require urgent attention and treatment.

Conclusion: Difficult airways management should include the use of BB. In absence of a standard BB and in low-income settings, it is possible to obtain it separating from a Univent tube.

ConclusionWe conclude that flexible bronchoscopic intubation through an AuraGain laryngeal mask can be achieved at least as fast as standard bronchoscopic intubation without contributing to additional patient morbidity or postoperative discomfort.Trial registrationwww.clinicaltrials.gov, NCT 02570269.

Conclusions.‘Cord’ turning of the fibrescope appears to be more effective in rotating the tip than a turn of the fibrescope ‘body’ only. Straightening the fibrescope cord and combined ‘body’ and ‘cord’ turning are recommended.
