AirWay Scope™ for Difficult Ventilation in a Patient With Epiglottic Cyst.

Abstract

Epiglottic cysts often cause difficulty in airway management, with potential serious life-threatening complications. 1 This case report describes a patient with an epiglottic cyst in whom mask ventilation became difficult after induction of anesthesia. Immediately, an AirWay Scope™ (TMAWS-S100; Pentax, Japan) was inserted orally, and the location of the epiglottis was clarified to assess the reason for difficulty with ventilation. This case demonstrates usefulness of the AirWay Scope in patients with epiglottic cyst.
