Abstract
Laryngeal web is a rare congenital disease, and its
incidence has been estimated to be 1 in 10, 000 live births. A 4-year-old female child with laryngeal web was scheduled for laryngeal web removal. Smooth intubation without causing damages to the laryngeal web is important during induction. Also, it is very important to select the appropriate tube size during pediatric anesthesia. There is lack of a registered cuffed microlaryngeal surgery (MLS) tube 3.5 mm inner diameter (ID) in Korea, and also our hospital did not have an uncuffed MLS tube 4.0 mm ID. Therefore we could not select the appropriate size of the laser tube. The patient’s laryngeal web was slightly injured during intubation. We report a case of laryngeal web injury caused by intubation for laryngeal web removal and wish to state that there is lack of a registered laser tube in the size, such as a cuffed MLS tube 3.5 mm ID.
