Abstract

Laryngeal papillomatosis is a rare throat infection which is potentially fatal without treatment as it leads to varying degrees of airway obstruction. CO2 LASER removal is the most common mode of treatment used. Anaesthesia for laser surgery entails two major complications, namely airway fires and difficult ventilation. The C-Mac D-blade is a valuable new addition to the anaesthetist’s armamentarium to overcome critical events like sudden airway obstruction by laryngeal papillomas.
