Kyphoscoliosis and difficult airway management
Kifoskolyoz ve zor havayolu yönetimi

Kemal Tolga SARAÇOĞLU [1] , Ömer BAYGIN [2] , İbrahim Haluk KAFALI [3]


Kyphoscoliosis is generally idiopathic and female dominant disease and the prevalence can vary between 0.3-15.3%. Anesthesia for both adult and pediatric patients with scoliosis can present a variety of challenges, because of some other diseases accompany to scoliosis. One of challenges is airway management. Problems with airway management may be fatal for patients. Basic preparations should be ready for airway management in a situation of unanticipated difficult airway. Besides there should be more than one plan and practitioners. If a strategy fails one should quickly change to another approach. Appropriate equipment beginning from laryngoscopes to a cricothyroid puncture kit should be available regarding practitioner’s experience on devices. Extubation of a patient with difficult airway is important as tracheal intubation. Low reintubation rates and patient comfort are the most important issues for the extubation of patients with difficult airway.

Keywords: Anesthesia; difficult airway; kyphoscoliosis.

Kifoskolyoz genel olarak idiopatik ve kadın dominant bir hastalıktır ve prevalansı %0.3-15.3 arasında değişebilir. Eşlik eden bazı hastalıklar nedeniyle gerek erişkin gerekse de pediatrik skolyoz hastaları için anestezi birçok zorluklar içerebilmektedir. Zorluklardan biri havayolu yönetimidir. Havayolu yönetimiyle ilgili sorunlar hastalar için ölümcül olabilir. Beklenen yada beklenmeyen zor havayolu durumu için temel hazırlıklar hazır bulundurulmalıdır. Bununla birlikte birden fazla plan ve uygulayıcı olmalıdır. Eğer bir stratejide başarısızlık olursa hızlıca diğer yaklaşıma geçilebilmelidir. Uygulayıcının aygıtlar üzerindeki deneyimine göre laringoskoplardan krikoidotomi kitine kadar uygun ekipman bulundurulmalıdır. Bir zor havayolu hastasının ekstübasyonu trakeal entübasyon kadar önemlidir. Düşük reentübasyon oranları ve hasta konforu zor havayoluna sahip hastaların ekstübasyonu için en önemli konulardandır
