Abstract

A 23 year-old man with a typical difficult airway due to Treacher-Collins syndrome was scheduled for elective tympanoplasty. His past anesthesia record revealed a history of difficult mask ventilation and several unsuccessful attempts at orotracheal intubation, with laryngeal evaluation of Cormack and Lehane grade 4. We successfully performed sedated awake intubation of the orotrachea using the Pentax AWS®. Sedated awake intubation using Pentax-AWS® is useful in patients with a difficult airway.
