Abstract
Difficult airway management techniques in adults often cannot be applied to children. Therefore, specific pediatric algorithms have been developed. The case is here reported of the use of a combination of techniques on a pediatric patient suffering from an extremely restricted mouth opening. A fiberoptic bronchoscope assisted nasotracheal intubation was performed with topical anesthesia and an ultrasound-guided bilateral superior laryngeal nerve block under continuous sedation.
