Conclusionsinstrumental measurements highlight that SLMA offers the advantage of less resistance to the airflow, allowing to keep lower oropharyngeal leak pressure during mechanical ventilation. Despite the differences reported, we observed only a few minor complications in both groups.

CONCLUSION The Spritztube was as effective as the LMA-S in maintaining the airway with all patients being successfully ventilated without difficulty. The success rate of achieving a patent airway was comparable between the groups, with a similar occurrence of complications. TRIAL REGISTRATION NCT03443219.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Postoperative sore throat is common after general anaesthesia. The incidence in paediatric anaesthesia is variable, and the aetiology unclear. Establishing risk-factors would enable prevention and could improve quality of care. AIMS: We performed a prospective single-centre cohort study aiming to establish the incidence of postoperative sore throat in children undergoing GA with an endotracheal tube or laryngeal mask airway. Secondary aims were to identify independent risk-factors for sore throat, and the incidence of other postoperative complications including stridor, laryngospasm, naus...

Abstract OBJECTIVE:  To investigate whether laryngeal mask anesthesia had more favorable postoperative outcomes than double-lumen tube intubation anesthesia in uniportal thoracoscopic thymectomy. METHODS:  Data were collected retrospectively from December 2013 to December 2017. A total of 96 patients with anterior mediastinum mass underwent nonintubated uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy with laryngeal mask, and 129 patients underwent intubated uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy. A single incision of ∼3 cm was made in an intercostal space along the anterior a...

Sarbari Swaika, Sujata Ghosh, Chiranjib BhattacharyyaIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2019 63(9):721-728 Airway devices were first used in children since 1940 and thereafter an increasingly large number of paediatric airway devices have come into our armamentarium. To control and protect the airway in children during anaesthesia, in intensive care unit or in emergency department either tracheal intubation is performed under direct or indirect visualization of vocal cords with the help of laryngoscopes or video-laryngoscopes respectively or it can be done blindly or by using special instruments such as fiberoptic laryngoscope...

Conclusion: I-gel may be a reliable and cost-effective alternative to LMA Fastrach™ for fibreoptic-guided tracheal intubation.
