Considering the fact that the rate of postoperative complications with ETT is likely to be more than LMA and using LMA during low-flow controlled anesthesia needs tight sealing of airway that needs requiring appropriate inflation of LMA cuff and on the other hand knowing that LMA cuff pressure correlates with sore throat and complications, we decided to compare the postoperative complication between LMA and ETT during low-flow anesthesia with controlled ventilation.
