Abstract
It may be the most important problem to keep the patent airway during a general anesthetic procedure or when emergency patient care is necessary. Endotracheal intubation facilitates to keep the airway. But unfortunately, we are confronted with complications of endotracheal intubation, occasionally. The authors experienced a case of segmental bronchial obstruction with mucus plug and successfully remedied by fiberoptic bronchoscopic aspiration through the endotracheal tube.
