Abstract

Children with Treacher Collins syndrome have multiple craniofacial abnormalities that can cause difficulty ventilating and intubating under general anesthesia. We describe a unique technique to secure an endotracheal tube via a retrograde technique using patent tracheocutaneous fistula and fiberoptic bronchoscopy. In this setting, the presence of a tracheocutaneous fistula spared tracheostomy in this patient.
