Induction and maintenance of anesthesia in prone position using a laryngeal mask airway is challenging and controversial. In this article, insertion of the laryngeal mask airway in supine and ISprone position is compared. Two groups of fifty patients referred to Salman Farsi Hospital in Boushehr aged 19-65 years with an American Society of Anesthesiologists' classification of I or II who were undergoing elective surgery in the prone or supine position were assigned to an airway secured by a Classic LMA. The numbers of insertion attempts using the LMA were documented, along with displacement and laryngospasm In 96% of patients in prone group inserting the laryngeal mask was successful at the first time but in the supine group, it was 74 percent. The ease of inserting the mask was correlated with the patient's position. Laryngospasm did not occur in the supine group but occurred in 4% of prone patients. No statistically significant differences were observed Between Laryngospasm and patient's position. Insertion of the laryngeal mask airway in prone position is Safe and dependable. By inserting a laryngeal mask airway in prone position the risk of laryngospasm is not necessarily increased.
