Abstract

Ex utero intrapartum treatment procedures are mainly indicated to secure the airways of fetuses featuring a risk of obstruction at birth while ensuring uteroplacental circulation. This report documents a successful intubation case with a C-MAC video laryngoscope during an ex utero intrapartum treatment procedure in a newborn featuring an infiltrative neck mass. Despite technical challenges faced in this procedure, the C-MAC video laryngoscope allowed an optimal view of airway structures. This novel approach, where laryngoscopy relies on the usage of C-MAC to optimize intubation conditions, may lead to increased chances of success in this particular scenario.
