Microlaryngeal tracheal (MLT) tube, when inserted through nasal route, offers adequate space in front of the tube for proper vision, excision and hemostasis of vocal cord lesions in the anterior and middle third portions as compared to oral route. There is less risk of kinking of tube at the point of securing with skin and it provides easy instrumentation for exposure of oral cavity. MLT tube placed nasally lies in the posterior comissure of vocal cord between arytenoids, leaving anterior two-third or more unobscured.
