Abstract

Patients with Klippel-Feil syndrome require much attention during anesthesia because of congenital abnormalities in head and neck regions and the high probability of neurological damage from cervical spine instability during endotracheal intubation. We report a case of successful endotracheal intubation using a videolaryngoscope in a patient with Klippel-Feil syndrome who experienced difficult transnasal intubation.
