Anesthetic considerations in a parturient with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome.
Int J Obstet Anesth. 2016 Aug; 27:81-4.IJ

Abstract

Freeman-Sheldon syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by malformations of the face, oral cavity and musculoskeletal system. This case report describes the anesthetic management of a parturient with Freeman-Sheldon syndrome, kyphoscoliosis and a cardiac pacemaker for a cesarean delivery and tubal ligation. With a predicted difficult airway, our team decided to provide a combined spinal-epidural anesthetic. Problems encountered included difficult intravenous access, failure to identify the subarachnoid space and patient discomfort during surgery.
