Abstract

We report a novel technique for the management of subglottic stenosis in a neonate. The initial endotracheal intubation did not provide adequate mechanical ventilation due to a significant air leak. We then performed suspension laryngoscopy and used a metal suction tube as an intubating stylet. We successfully inserted an endotracheal tube deep enough to maintain adequate mechanical ventilation. This technique is a viable rescue strategy in this clinical scenario.
