Some patient with T-tube tracheal stent may need to be anesthetized to be performed the non-airway related surgery. Without removal of the stent, general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation in these patents may cause serious complications, such as stent dislodgement, bleeding and breakage of stent. We describe a 43-year-old woman with a T-tube stent in situ, who was anesthetized using Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) for her ventriculo-peritoneal shunt operation. We occluded the top end of the LMA, thus employed it as a means of upper airway occlusion, while ventilation continued via the extratracheal portion of the T-tube stent, without any complications.
Key Words: equipment; laryngeal mask airway; T-tube; tracheal stent
