Figure 1: In vitro examination demonstrating the depth of insertion of the BB into the bronchial lumen of left DLT for effective cuff seal. (a)The cuff length of the BB was 2.5 cm. (b)The length of bronchial lumen of DLT from 30 cm mark to the machine end was 10 cm. (c) The final length of BB to be inserted into the bronchial lumen of DLT to provide effective cuff seal was 42.5 cm. BB Bronchial blocker, DLT Double lumen tube
