The LMA (laryngeal mask airway)-ProSeal introducer was developed for easy insertion and fewer PLMA related complications. We experienced tearing of the lingual frenulum incidentally caused by insertion of the PLMA with the introducer. We believe that the introducer may have some advantages concerning insertion PLMA but some disadvantages because it hinder patient tongue control.
