AbstractAbstract PDF
A 67-year-old woman with severe congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association, NYHA class IV) was set to receive general anesthesia for cardiac surgery. For several months, she had been in a constant sitting position from which the slightest change evoked dyspnea. A patient in such a condition is rarely considered a candidate for general anesthesia, because such patients are never eligible for any type of surgery other than that used to fix the heart problem itself. We report this case to explain how anesthesia was induced with the patient sitting in a crouching position and discuss other methods of induction that can probably be used in similar situations.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Laryngo-tracheal perforation caused by the use of a stylet during tracheal intubation is a rare complication. We present a case of subcutaneous emphysema and connective tissue inflammation after tracheal intubation. The patient was a 41-year-old male undergoing general anesthesia for an appendectomy. The intubation was difficult during laryngoscopy (Cormack-Lehane Grade III). An assistant provided an endotracheal tube with a stylet inside while the laryngoscope was in place. During intubation, a short, dull sound was heard with a sudden loss of resistance after the distal tip of the endotracheal tube passed the rima glottis. A sonogram and computerized tomography revealed subcutaneous emphysema from the neck to the upper mediastinum and fluid collection between the trachea and the thyroid. This lesion appeared to have been caused by the protruded, loose stylet. Anesthesiologists should be aware of the damage a loose stylet protruding beyond the tip of the endotracheal tube can cause.
