Gayatri Jain | Ankita Joshi | Olvyna D'souza | R L Gogna

Abstract: Use of advanced fibre optic bronchoscopy to facilitate intubation to secure difficult airways is well known. But this technique can be very challenging in paediatric patients due to their lack of co operation and anxiety. In this case report we present a successful atraumatic nasotracheal intubation under FOB guidance in a case of paediatric left sided Temporomandibular joint ankylosis under deep sedation using a Nasophayrngeal airway.

Keywords: TMJ ankylosis, Nasopharngeal airway, paediatric FOB.
