The tracheal tube (TT) kink during the intraoperative period is commonly observed and is worrisome once the positioning is done during neurosurgical procedures. The complications related to tube kink are more in the prone position and the mechanism of this with the neck in flexion has not been explained anywhere. We have made an attempt to elucidate the probable mechanism of this TT kink by using SOLIDWORKS 2020 {3D Computer assisted design (CAD) design software} and the precautions that can be taken to prevent perioperative catastrophe by describing a case of a pediatric patient undergoing a neurosurgical procedure while in the prone position.
