Özet

INTRODUCTION: It is hard to make a differential diagnosis of upper airway diseases in pediatrics. Best method is direct visualization. Flexible nasopharyngoscopy is the most performed method. Rigid telescope-video laryngoscopy (RTVL) could be an alternative in patients who can not be performed flexible nasopharyngoscopy. It is aimed to review RTVL results of pediatric patients for the evaluation of upper airway problems.
