The use of the intubating laryngeal mask in three patients is described. In two patients for whom tracheal intubation using traditional techniques had failed, the intubating laryngeal mask was used to achieve successful tracheal intubation. The trachea of one of these patients was subsequently re-intubated for a second procedure using the same technique. A third patient with a cervical spine fracture whose trachea was electively intubated using the intubating laryngeal mask is also presented.
