This would place it in the category of a cuffed perilaryngeal sealer like the cLMA (8).
A randomized prospective study comparing the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway and Laryngeal Mask AirwayClassic during controlled ventilation for gynecological laparos copy.
Made from a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, i-gel has been designed to create a non-inflatable, anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures while avoiding compression trauma.
The new perilaryngeal airway (CobraPLA) is as efficient as the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) but provides better airway sealing pressures.
I read with interest the recent article of Andrews and colleagues, comparing the Classic-LMA[TM] (LMA) to the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway[TM] (PLA) (1).
Randomised comparison of the Classic Laryngeal Mask Airway with the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway during anaesthesia in spontaneously breathing adult patients.

Hence the design of our study was aimed to compare current real world LMA use (including size selection) with the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway[TM] and we believe that our results reflect this practice.
A new supraglottic airway device, the Perilaryngeal Airway (CobraPLA[TM], Engineered Medical Systems Inc, Indianapolis, IN, USA) (PILA) has recently received attention as an alternative to the LMA (5).
Upon insertion, the distal head holds the perilaryngeal soft tissues and epiglottis in place and abuts the laryngeal inlet, allowing ventilation through the slotted openings (Figure 2).
We compared the laryngeal mask airway (LMA[TM]) and the laryngeal tube (LT[R]) with the perilaryngeal airway (CobraPLA[R], PLA) in anaesthetised, paralysed children having brief surgical procedures.
