Styleted tubes are recommended for endotracheal intubation using McGrath Mac video laryngoscope by manufacturers. Stylet use has been rarely associated with mucosal injuries. The aim was to compare the ease of intubation with styleted and non styleted tube during videolaryngoscopic endotracheal intubations in adult patients with non-difficult appearing airways.

The aim was to compare the ease of intubation with styleted and non styleted tube during videolaryngoscopic endotracheal intubations in adult patients with non-difficult appearing airways.
