          Abstract

          We describe a pulmonary aspiration that occurred during tracheal intubation with the LMA CTrach (SEBAC, Pantin, France) in a male morbidly obese patient (178 cm height, BMI=48 kg m(-2)) admitted for elective gastric banding. Our report suggests that manipulations of the CTrach such as Up-manoeuvre may lead to pulmonary aspiration in the case of regurgitated gastric content.
