Large neck masses involving the airway can lead to hypoxia or the demise of the newborn in case the airway is not secured in time. A planned ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) enables to access the airway by various means under optimal conditions. Advancements in imaging and well-orchestrated teamwork enable to improve the survival by EXIT procedure.
