Prior to general anesthesia, some maxillofacial conditions may require tracheostomy or, in recent years, fiberoptic endotracheal intubation. This technic is efficient but delicate and therefore needs a skilled qualified operator. However, fiberoptic endoscope may avoid the inconvenience of tracheostomy. This article presents our method of fiberoptic endotracheal intubation with the specific indications and results.
