A 9-year-old girl with mental retardation, weighing 23 kg, was scheduled for surgical repair of atresia auris congenita
Direct laryngoscopy using the Macintosh laryngoscope revealed the tip of the epiglottis but not glottic opening (Figure 1a). An anesthesia resident inserted the pediatric AOL into the mouth and very easily captured the full view of the vocal cords (Figure 1b). An endotracheal tube with cuff (internal diameter of 5.0 mm) was intubated within 40 s.
