  • A national survey of videolaryngoscopes and alternative intubation devices in Hungary. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One 2019; 14(10):e0223645Nagy B, Rendeki S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Approximately two-thirds of Hungarian anesthesiologists have immediate access to videolaryngoscopes, which are used mainly for difficult airway management. The overall attitude towards VL is positive, and many videolaryngoscopes are known and have been used by Hungarian anesthesiologists. However, only a few devices on the market are used commonly. Based on the results, further improvement might be recommended regarding VL training and availability.
  • A Synopsis of Contemporary Anesthesia Airway Management. [Journal Article]
    Transl Perioper Pain Med 2019; 6(1):5-16Bohringer C, Duca J, Liu H
  • New airway equipment has recently become available that has reduced morbidity and mortality. However, airway disasters still occur. This article discusses the prudent escalation of the use of advanced airway equipment to prevent these disasters. We illustrate when and how to use a gum elastic bougie and a video-laryngoscope (VL). We also strongly recommend the combined use of the VL together with…
  • Difficult Airway Identification and Management in Patients With Moebius Syndrome. [Journal Article]
    J Craniofac Surg 2019Telich-Tarriba JE, Guevara-Valmaña O, … Cardenas-Mejia A
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intubation can be difficult in patients with Moebius syndrome, but failure is rare. Overweight or obese patients are at risk of presenting a difficult airway. An extensive preoperative evaluation and adequate communication between the members of the multidisciplinary team in charge of these patients is paramount.
  • Airway challenges in bilateral temporomandibular joint ankylosis with adenoid hypertrophy: a case report. [Journal Article]
    J Oral Biol Craniofac Res 2019 Jul-Sep; 9(3):256-258Jain G, Barik AK, … Chug A
  • Temporomandibular joint ankylosis is one of the most challenging airway disorders associated with varying anatomical abnormalities like adenotonsillar hypertrophy, craniofacial malformations, macroglossia, etc. This case highlights the intubation difficulties confronted during the airway management of a 10-year-old girl presenting lately with bilateral temporomandibular joint ankylosis, hypoplast…
  • Orofacial management for epidermolysis bullosa during wisdom tooth removal surgery: A technical note. [Journal Article]
    J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019Delebarre H, Chiaverini C, … Savoldelli C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intraoral blistering in EB and scarring may result in microstomia and obliteration sulci, which can lead to difficulties in navigating the oral cavity. Consensus on a reasonable treatment protocol is lacking because no large cohort study exists. Lack of preparation of the facial skin and surgical instruments can lead to aggravation of lesions, especially when reaching for the third molars. A standardized procedure with general anaesthesia might pose fewer difficulties during the operation and limit facial and oral lesion aggravation. Prophylactic extraction of the third molar in younger patients with EB should be considered to avoid complications.Atraumatic anaesthesia procedures and specific surgical care for these patients can be provided by using a protocol that protects the skin and mucous membranes from traumas.
