Abstract

Airway management in retrosternal goitre with documented tracheal compression can pose several difficulties. Currently awake fibreoptic bronchoscope guided intubation seems to be the standard airway management option. But sometimes even this option can have its own flaws which calls for alternative options. Here we suggest an alternative approach to such an anticipated difficult airway.
