ABSTRACT

The case of a 48-year-old female posted for elective surgery for cholecystitis with a history of previous failed intubation is reported. She had misaligned mandibular incisors and canine teeth, reducing the interincisor distance to 8 mm. Proper preoperative assessment and evaluation of the difficult airway helped to achieve successful uneventful intubation.

Keywords: Airway management, Anticipated difficult intubation, Fiberoptic bronchoscopy.
