In the case of complete surgical resection of locally aggressive thyroid mass with severely compromised airways, airway management is difficult and can be considerably risky. We report a case of airway management using i-gelTM and cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), which is a safe and feasible method of airway management for providing general anesthesia in a patient with a large thyroid mass.
