Regarding neonates with upper airway blockage and awake endotracheal intubation.

Upper airway obstruction is a danger in neonates with Pierre Robin or Treacher-Collins syndrome, and surgical attachment of the tongue to the jaw may be required. Such infants are at a high risk of hypoxia during anaesthetic induction, necessitating awake fiberoptic intubation. The problem was rectified by inserting the laryngeal mask while awake. For continuous upper airway obstruction, a month-old infant with Pierre Robin syndrome and another with TreacherCollins syndrome were scheduled for surgical fixation of the tongue to the jaw.
