This article presents the case of a child aged 2 years and 7 months with CS scheduled for bilateral tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. The patient had a difficult procedure of extubation and was reintubated and the tracheal intubation was removed 2 days after surgery. The CS is a rare condition with physical characteristics that can result in difficult airway manipulation. It is important for anesthesiologists to recognize and avoid potential airway complications in the management of such patients through detailed preoperative evaluation and careful observation after surgery to reduce perioperative r...

Adjunctive agents may improve the overall postoperative course of patients and limit the need for opioid analgesics. Dexamethasone is a frequently administered intr...

7-year-old girl dies during tonsillectomy A 7-year-old South Carolina girl died one minute into surgery to remove her tonsils, her parents told CNN affiliate WHNS. www.cnn.com They specifically say she arrested 1 minute into surgery.
