Conclusion: Hemodynamic stress response to endotracheal intubation is minimal or absent in postlaryngectomy patients. They mostly present with elevated blood pressure and develop hypotension following induction that persists despite intubation.

Introduction Management of tracheostomy and laryngectomy is an important skill for physicians who often care for patients with multiple, comorbid, chronic medical conditions. There is little published literature on training for tracheostomy and laryngectomy care during nonsurgical specialty residencies. This project was designed to assess and improve comfort with, knowledge of, proficiency in tracheostomy and laryngectomy care. Methods This prospective observational study comprised 122 physician trainees from internal medicine, emergency medicine, and anesthesia training programs at the University of Arkansas for Medi...

Rationale: Adenoid cystic carcinomas (ACCs) are malignant tumors and occur in the major and the minor salivary glands. ACCs are rare in the larynx. Patient concerns: A 55-year-old female patient who presented with a 12 months history of paraesthesia pharynges and hoarseness for 4 months. Laryngoscopy showed an endophytic lesion in the right supglottic area with no laryngeal stenosis. And magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) confirmed the presence of a submucosal mass in the supglottic area. Supporting laryngoscope was performed under general anesthesia and a lesion biopsy obtained. Diagnoses: The lesion was sent for fr...

CONCLUSIONThere is no diagnostic and treatment approach established for laryngeal chondrosarcoma, we believe that percutaneous biopsy would be the diagnostic test of choice because it is less invasive and has a high sensitivity and specificity; it could also identify patients who are candidates for conservative surgeries.

We described our technique with advantages and pitfalls. The Provox Vega Puncture Set was used. Our technique for in-clinic secondary TEP without general anesthesia or target controlled infusion was a safe and effective procedure. It allows the use of the traditional TEP set, with possibility of voice prosthesis placement after previous TEP closure.

We report the successful airway management in a post-laryngectomy patient with a permanent tracheostoma and a short carina-stoma distance who underwent open left thoracotomy using a fiberoptically directed Fastrach wire-reinforced silicone reusable endotracheal tube ([ETT]; Teleflex, Westmeath, Ireland) to achieve one-lung ventilation (OLV). The patient's family reviewed the case and gave a written permission to publish this report and subsequently all the images.

Authors: Karamanou M, Markatos K, Lymperi M, Agapitos E, Androutsos G Abstract Laryngeal cancer was a well known entity since antiquity and its treatment evolved through several phases. The lack of knowledge in anatomy and pathology as well as the absence of anesthesia and proper instrumentation made the treatment almost impossible. Ancient physicians were performing laryngotomy or tracheotomy in an attempt to prevent the suffocation symptoms produced by tumoral masses. In 19th century the invention of laryngoscope and the advent of pathology and anesthesiology encouraged surgeons to operate on man. In 1873 Theodor...

Dexmedetomidine as an adjunct with opioids has been confirmed to spare opioids usage and improve analgesia for postoperative pain treatment. Furthermore, dexmedetomidine can attenuate the airway reflex. The ai...

Authors: Atallah I, Berta E, Coffre A, Villa J, Reyt E, Righini CA Abstract Glottic cancers discovered at an early stage (T1-T2) can be treated with either radiotherapy or surgery. The aim of our study is to analyse survival and functional results of supra-cricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) with crico-hyoido-epiglottopexy (CHEP) as surgical treatment for glottic carcinoma with anterior commissure involvement. We performed a retrospective study (1996-2013) which included patients who underwent SCPL-CHEP for glottic squamous cell carcinoma with involvement of the anterior commissure. Before surgery, all patients und...
