Abstract

Awake fibreoptic intubation (AFI) is a standard method of airway management in a case of anticipated difficult intubation. It is usually performed using flexible fibroscopes. In this report, we describe the case of a 42 year-old female patient who suffered from congenital disease producing severe deformation of the head, face, neck and chest. In this case, the AFI procedure was performed successfully using a rigid intubation stylet: the Clarus Video System. One of the advantages of rigid stylets is that they are very easy to use, and in the hands of anaesthesiologists not very familiar with fibroscope intubation, they can be an alternative to flexible fibroscopes in AFI procedures.
