Anesthetic Management of a Pediatric Patient With Bardet-Biedl Syndrome: A Case Report

In this report, we present our experience in the management of anesthesia during endoscopic sinus surgery that was performed for the first time on a 6-year-old pediatric patient diagnosed with Bardet-Biedl syndrome.

Editor ’s PerspectiveWhat We Already Know about This TopicSuccessful tracheal intubation of an infant may be a challenging skill to acquire due to differing anatomy and physiology compared to older children and adultsMultiple intubation attempts may be associated with increased complicationsWhat This Article Tells Us That Is NewIn a quaternary pediatric academic center, 16% of healthy infants undergoing routine tracheal intubations had multiple laryngoscopiesThere was also a 35% incidence of hypoxemia, defined as an oxygen saturation measurement less than 90%, during induction of anesthesiaThere was evidence for an a...

Conclusion: The ILTS-D successfully performs in an airway mannequin with higher success rate and shorter time for blindly establishing an airway with an ETT using the SGA as a conduit, compared with AAG. Further clinical trials are warranted.

(Anesth Analg. 2019;128(3):584–586. Doi:10.1213/ANE.0000000000003886) While video laryngoscopy (VL) has brought substantial changes to the practice of airway management, the way anesthesiologists define a “difficult intubation” has not been altered accordingly. The American Society of Anesthesiologists has defined a “difficult airway” as “the clinical situation in which a conventionally trained anesthesiologist experiences difficulty with facemask ventilation of the upper airway, difficulty with intubation, or both,” and also has set forth clear, separate definitions of difficult ...

Abstract The gold standard in airway maintenance is translaryngeal endotracheal intubation, but this is not without its complications. Trauma to the upper airway as a result of the act of endotracheal intubation is a common event in adults undergoing procedures under general anaesthesia. Sites requiring attention during intubation include the laryngeal apparatus, the pharynx and oral cavity as well as the nasal cavity when nasopharyngeal intubation is performed. Patients can present with a range of symptoms which can make assessment and management challenging. Dysphonia, throat pain and dysphagia are the commonest...
