Abstract

Children with congenital anomalies such as Goldenhar syndrome affecting the airway can be a problem for the anaesthesiologist. We present the case of an 18 month-old child with Goldenhar syndrome, in whom the ProSeal (TM) Laryngeal Mask Airway was successfully used for inguinal hernia surgery.
