Abstract

Palatal groove is one of the complications of orotracheal intubation in premature infants. Previous reports demonstrated an incidence of 48% of palatal groove formation in premature infants which increased to 88% when the duration of intubation was greater than two weeks. A prosthetic intraoral acrylic appliance which has successfully prevented such a groove formation has been described in this paper.
