Abstract

We present two cases which were conducted under general anaesthesia with controlled ventilation using ProSeal Laryngeal Mask Airway (PLMA) as the airway device. The first case was operated laparoscopically while the second case was done by the conventional technique. Both patients had raised abdominal pressure and had regurgitation in the intraoperative period. Pulmonary aspiration was prevented by the drain tube of the PLMA in both cases.
