Abstract

The authors suggest preventive minitracheotomy as a support technique in difficult endotracheal intubation, and report their experience in a case of surgical operation to remove a bony neoformation of C1 and C2 posterior arcs. Endotracheal intubation, difficult because no part of the glottis could be seen, was made possible by preventive minitracheotomy. In this way sedation, myorelaxation and excellent oxygenation during following manoeuvre that resulted atraumatic, were obtained. The small cannula of minitracheotomy was maintained closed during the operation and open for 24 hours thereafter to prevent obstructive complications. It was then removed.
