Abstract

A 61-year-old woman with pulmonary lymphangio-leiomyomatosis was scheduled for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for partial resection of the lung. The patient had micrognathism and a recent history of difficult airway management [difficult mask ventilation and intubation (Cormak gradeIII)]. On induction, mask ventilation was accomplished with the use of nasal airway. We initially inserted Airtraq laryngoscope and gained a view of Cormak gradeIII. Therefore, a 32 Fr left-sided Blue Line endobroncheal tube was nasotracheally intubated using a fiberscope (3.1-mm diameter). Nasotracheal intubation with a 32F Blue Line endobroncheal tube can be a choice for patients with difficult airway when one lung ventilation is required.
