Baska Mask Failure: Culprit Resides at the Posterior Commissure
Baska Mask (BM), the second-generation supraglottic airway device (SGAD), has many novel features, which should improve safety when used in both spontaneously breathing and IPPV anesthesia. These includes a noninflatable cuff, which reduces the risk of oropharyngeal tissue and/or nerve damage induced by cuff over inflation, a known complication with other supraglottic airways. it also has an additional gastric channel and a bite block. We recently encountered with an unusal case of baska mask failure.
