1M ago
Background: The recently developed blade design of the Sanyar® video laryngoscope yields an exceptionally precise visualization of the larynx, thereby easing the process of tracheal intubation. Objectives: A non-inferiority clinical investigation, to assess the efficacy of the Sanyar® as compared to the Macintosh® direct laryngoscope for nasotracheal intubation in the context of maxillofacial surgeries. Methods: 78 patients for maxillofacial surgery were divided randomly into two groups and intubated through the nose using either the Sanyar® or Macintosh® laryngoscope after anesthesia was indu ..read more

Background: Idiopathic clubfoot deformity is a relatively common congenital pediatric foot deformity. A percutaneous Achilles tenotomy (PAT) is required to correct the equinus deformity as it is the most resistant component of clubfoot deformity. Although this procedure is mainly performed with local anesthesia, performing this procedure with general anesthesia has significant advantages. Aims: The purpose of this study was to compare the safety and efficacy of post-procedural pain management of PAT in the treatment of clubfoot with the Ponseti method when performed in a clinic setting with lo ..read more

1M ago
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is the most common hematological malignancy in the pediatric age group. Anesthesia in such patients necessitates special considerations, in terms of disease progression and its respective treatment as well. We present a case of a 2-year-old child, a known case of ALL posted for drainage of multifocal brain abscess under general anesthesia. Anesthetic management of children with ALL presenting for neurosurgical procedures should focus on disease and its various systemic manifestations, treatment-related side effects, and anesthetic interactions which sometimes ..read more

Hip to Neck Circumference Ratio as an Independent Predictor of Difficult Intubation in Obese Patients
Archives of Anesthesiology and Critical Care
by Dorna Kheirabadi, Amir Shafa, Mohammadreza Rasouli, Azim Honarmand, Mohammadreza Safavi
1M ago
Background: Anaesthesiologists face difficult intubation (DI) more frequently in obese patients. Thus, we aimed to test if central obesity indices including hip circumference (HC), neck circumference (NC) or waist circumference (WC) can effectively predict DI and difficult mask ventilation (DMV) in them. Methods: HC, NC, WC, mask ventilation grade, intubation difficulty scale (IDS), history of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) were measured in 300 patients with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2. Receiver operating characteristic curve (ROC) and multivariate, logistic regression were employed to identify ..read more

1M ago
Background: Endotracheal intubation is a potentially high-risk aerosol-generating procedure. So, an intubation box (I-Box) is designed for personal protection during intubation. This study aimed to compare the outcomes of endotracheal intubation with and without an I-box in COVID-19 patients. Methods: In this study, 60 COVID-19 patients (30 patients in each group) with and without I-box groups were included. outcomes of intubation including duration of intubation, first-pass success intubation, suitable visibility of airways, restriction of movement in the neck, the need to surface maneuvering ..read more

Background: Perioperative pain management can improve surgery results and patient outcomes. Moreover, multimodal methods for pain control have been advised so this study was conducted to assess the beneficial impact of preoperative ultrasound-guided femoral nerve blocks in hip replacement surgery. Methods: This study is a double-blinded clinical trial including 60 individuals who were candidates for joint replacement surgery. The intervention group (n = 30) received a femoral nerve block prior to general anesthesia. Results: After surgery, patients received morphine, Apotel, and morphine ..read more
