Abstract

The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has been used successfully for an ever-increasing number of applications. Utilization in oral maxillofacial surgery has been hampered by surgical difficulties working around the device. In this case series, a novel device, the LMA-PROP, was used to determine whether it was possible to alleviate device-positioning concerns with third molar extraction cases. LMA-PROP was used with both anesthesia and surgical satisfaction in this small pilot study. LMA-PROP appears to be a helpful new tool allowing the surgeon to maintain current surgical techniques for third molar extraction while securing LMA adequately for anesthesia maintenance.
