BACKGROUND: Flexible laryngeal mask airway is a commonly used supraglotic airway device (SAD) during ophthalmic surgeries. Air-Q intubating laryngeal airway (ILA) is a newer SAD used as primary airway device and as a conduit for intubation as well. Available literature shows that air-Q performs equal or better than other SADs in children and adults. However, limited data is available using air-Q in infants and small children <10 kg.

Oral flora are frequently found in normal individuals' lungs without known harm. We hypothesize that a lung microbiome enriched by oral taxa would be associated with a higher degree of inflammation. We studied 29 asymptomatic subjects (9 nonsmokers and 20 smokers) with preserved lung function. Nasal bronchoscopy was performed with two separate bronchoscopes to retrieve supraglotic and lower airway samples. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cell count, BAL cytokines (Luminex), and exhaled nitric oxide defined pulmonary inflammation...

Laryngeal amyloidosis is a very rare disease. In the upper airways, the most common localization is the laryngeal organ, particularly the supraglotic region. Usually laryngeal amyloidosis is a localized primary form, although it has occasionally been reported in conjunction with system amyloidosis. We are reporting a new case of localized primary laryngeal amyloidosis in the right arytenoid mucosa in a 66 years old woman who underwent CO2 laser endoscopic surgery.
