28] found that both the Wilson risk sum and the Mallampati test failed to predict as many as 58 % of difficult laryngoscopies. In an obstetric population, Gupta et al. [68] found a Se of 100 % and a Sp of 96 % when using a combination of Mallampati and the Wilson’s scores. Merah et al. 5 cm or less for predicting DI. In an effort to arrive at the best results in predicting DI, it has been suggested that evaluation of the tests be combined, but Tse et al. [39] found that using an oropharyngeal class 3, a TMD B7 cm, a head extension angle B80° or any combination of these factors failed to predict DI reliably.

For successful intubation using VL, two things need to occur: (i) optimal blade insertion to view the glottis, and (ii) optimal introduction of the ETT to the vocal cords. Videolaryngoscopes are designed for insertion into the upper airway to provide a glottic image either by one of two methods: (i) in the midline over the tongue; (ii) or along the floor of mouth with displacement of tongue and flattening of the submandibular space [7]. These two methods of laryngoscopy are rarely interchangeable between laryngscopes.

Since an access to anatomical landmarks of the mandible, neck and occiput was only possible through x-ray examinations, researchers resorted to roentgenographic studies to measure the different anatomical distances which they presumed and rightly presumed in playing a pivotal role in DI. Owing to the indispensible role of the mandible in relation to DI, the mandibular configuration has since been analyzed using roentgenography of lateral views of mandible in innumerable studies [2, 62–65].
