(Abstracted from J Clin Anesth, 36:32–35, 2017)

The purpose this prospective, observational clinical investigation was to assess whether regurgitated gastric contents are present in the oropharynx of patients having laparoscopic gynecologic surgery with a laryngeal mask airway (LMA). The use of an LMA has been shown beneficial during postoperative recovery, but the use of LMA for laparoscopy remains controversial because of the risk of aspiration.
