Videolaryngoscope versus conventional technique for insertion of a transesophageal echocardiography probe in intubated ICU patients (VIDLARECO trial): A randomized control trial

In a clinical trial with 100 intubated critically ill patients, using a videolaryngoscope for transesophageal echocardiogram probe insertion resulted in a higher first-attempt success rate (90% vs. 58%) and overall success rate (100% vs. 72%) compared to conventional techniques. It also reduced pharyngeal complications (14% vs. 52%).
