Videolaryngoscope versus Conventional Technique for Insertion of a Transesophageal Echocardiography Probe in Intubated ICU Patients (VIDLARECO trial). A Randomized Clinical trial - ScienceDirect

In a trial with 100 intubated critically ill patients, the use of a videolaryngoscope for transesophageal echocardiogram probe insertion significantly increased first-attempt success rates (90% vs. 58%, p < 0.001) and overall success (100% vs. 72%, p < 0.001), compared to the conventional method. Additionally, the videolaryngoscope group experienced notably fewer pharyngeal complications (14% vs. 52%, p < 0.001), demonstrating its efficacy and safety over traditional techniques in this patient population.
