Abstract

Airway obstruction and feeding difficulty associated with Robin sequence may be difficult management problems that require invasive therapeutic measures. We present two cases of infants with airway obstruction who were treated successfully as outpatients by placement of a nasogastric tube for airway maintenance and supplementation of oral feeding. In patients with Robin sequence who have upper airway obstruction and feeding difficulties not resolved by prone positioning, placement of an indwelling nasogastric tube should be considered before an invasive surgical procedure is undertaken.
