- A female infant (4 months-old) with Goldenhar syndrome was scheduled for cheiloplasty to treat a transverse facial cleft and
congenital macrostomia. There was no past history of difficulty during feeding or airway obstruction. Following induction of
anesthesia using an inhalational anesthetic technique, conventional oro-tracheal intubation was possible. However, following
extubation of the endotracheal tube she developed an upper airway obstruction. Her lungs could not be ventilated using a facial
mask and oxygen saturation was decreased. A #1 laryngeal mask airway (LMA) was inserted immediately, which allowed us
to ventilate her lungs and restore the oxygen saturation. Here we describe the use of a LMA for emergency airway management
in an infant.
