LMA is one of the airway management device. Novel technique of LMA insertion combined with tongue supression technique resulted in 100% succes rate of insertion. The objective of this study was to compare easiness and complications of inserting LMA using classic approach combined with tongue supression and classic approach. This study was a single-blind randomized clinical trial conducted from May ̶June 2013 in RSCM on 80 adult patients who underwent elective surgery with general anesthesia using LMA. In 40 patients underwent LMA insertion with classic approached combined with tongue supression technique and 40 patients with classic approached. Effort and success rate was noted and evaluated. Insertion was considered easy if the insertion was attempted maximally twice. Complications such as blood stains, sore throat, and dysphagia was noted and evaluated. Statistical analysis conducted by Chi-square Test and Fischer Exact. P <0,05 was considered significant. Proportion of first and second attempt LMA insertion between both technique was 87,5% compared with 65% and 100% compared with 97,5%, respectively. LMA insertion with classic approached combined with tongue supression technique was not easier than with classic approached technique. Complication which statistically significant different was blood stains 0% with classic approached combined with tongue supression technique compared with 6,2% classic approached technique.
