Laryngeal mask airway and the Robinow syndrome.
Minerva Anestesiol. 2006 Jan-Feb; 72(1-2):81-3.MA

Abstract

The Robinow syndrome is an extremely rare congenital syndrome that causes facial malformations, as well as genital, cardiac and skeletal abnormalities. Patients with this syndrome undergo several operations during their life. Because of the facial abnormalities they carry a potential risk for difficult intubation. We describe the case of a boy who underwent several operations with documented difficult intubation. The laryngeal mask airway provided a good solution for airway control and afforded adequate ventilation under both controlled mechanical ventilation and spontaneous breathing.
