Abstract

C-MAC videolaryngoscope is a major advancement in difficult airway management as it not only facilitates intubation under vision but also diagnoses airway problems. We present a unique case of difficult airway for head and neck cancer surgery, where tube passage was impeded by a mucous overhanging structure between the base of epiglottis and the vocal cords. A nasotracheal tube was successfully negotiated under C-MAC guidance and the entire perioperative course was uneventful.
