In the armamentarium of an anesthesiologist, videolaryngoscopy is a valuable addition to secure the airway. However, when the videolaryngoscope (VLS) offers no solution, few options remain. Earlier, we presented an intubation technique combining Macintosh blade VLS and Bonfils intubation endoscope (BIE) for a patient with a history of very difficult intubation. In the present study, we evaluated this technique to establish whether it is a valuable alternative.

The C-MAC laryngoscope (C-MAC) is a videolaryngoscope that uses a modified Macintosh blade. Although several anecdotal reports exist, it remains unclear whether the C-MAC is superior to the Macintosh ...
Nasotracheal intubation (NTI) is a common practice in the oral and maxillofacial surgeries. A systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine whether videolaryngoscopy (VL) compared wit...
In patients with an unstable cervical spine, maintenance of cervical immobilization during tracheal intubation is important. In McGrath videolaryngoscopic intubation, lifting of the blade to raise the...
Head and neck position is one of the factors which can be associated with difficult videolaryngoscopy and tracheal intubation. This prospective randomised clinical trial compared 'sniffing' and neutra...
In the presented study, our aim was to compare intubation conditions regarding the modified Cormack & Lehane score (CL) between the D-Blade® in indirect laryngoscopy or Macintosh blade in...
Abstract Background Successful tracheal intubation during general anesthesia requires a direct laryngoscope to retract the tongue and soft tissues of the mouth to achieve a line of sight f...
The primary objective is to evaluate a knewly developed blade (for intubating patients about to undergo surgery) and compare it to the traditional Macintosh blade
The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of McGrath MAC videolaryngoscopy on the intubation time for orotracheal intubation in children with torticollis. The ...
The purpose of this prospective open labeled randomized study was to compare the "laryngoscopic glottis view" as well as "ease of intubation" between the two blades in routine intubations ...
Rigid, semi-rigid, or inflatable cylindric hydraulic devices, with either combined or separate reservoir and pumping systems, implanted for the surgical treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.
Group of rare congenital disorders characterized by impairment of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leukopenia, and low or absent antibody levels. It is inherited as an X-linked or autosomal recessive defect. Mutations occurring in many different genes cause human Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).
