New Device For Submental Endotracheal Intubation.

J Craniofac Surg 2020 Mar/Apr;31(2):562-563

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program, Hospital João XXIII/FHEMIG.

The submental intubation is a well-described technique as an alternative for the tracheostomy in the airway management in patients with contraindications for the nasotracheal and cannot remain in the orotracheal position due to the need to maintain the intermaxillary fixation. Residents and young oral and maxillofacial surgeons could have experienced some difficulty performing the technique first described by Altemir (1986). This report aims to describe a new device designed to facilitate and simplify the technique helping surgeons on the submental endotracheal intubation. Read More

Successful Airway and Anesthesia Management Using a High-Flow Nasal Cannula in a Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Patient During General Anesthesia: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2020 Feb;14(3):75-78

From the Department of Anesthesiology, Tokyo Dental College, Ichikawa General Hospital, Ichikawa, Japan.

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare hereditary disorder causing neck stiffness, ankylosis of temporomandibular joints, and severe restrictive respiratory dysfunction due to progressive heterotopic ossification of the connective tissue. Herein, we report a case of successful airway and anesthesia management using a high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) in a 51-year-old man with FOP undergoing partial bone resection of the right greater trochanter of the femur. Although general anesthesia with awake fiberoptic nasotracheal intubation has been described as the gold standard, HFNC may yield another potentially viable option for patients undergoing a surgical procedure that does not involve the airway.

Is Tube Thermosoftening Helpful for Videolaryngoscope-Guided Nasotracheal Intubation?: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

Anesth Analg 2019 09;129(3):812-818

From the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: Thermosoftening of the endotracheal tube (ETT) and telescoping the ETT into a rubber catheter have been suggested as a method for reducing epistaxis during nasotracheal intubation (NTI). However, thermosoftening technique is known to make it difficult to navigate the ETT into trachea without the use of Magill forceps during NTI. The cuff inflation technique has been suggested as an effective alternative to the use of Magill forceps to improve the oropharyngeal navigation of the ETT, irrespective of their stiffness, during direct laryngoscope-guided NTI.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Jun 26;12(6). Epub 2019 Jun 26.

Infectious Disease, St. Mary's Hospital, Waterbury, Connecticut, USA.

A 78-year-old woman with no known medical history presented with severe neck pain that began 4 days prior to admission located in the paraspinal cervical region radiating to the shoulders, legs and back. She had associated stiffness of her neck and progression of pain to her jaw and throat with progression to generalised body spasms with lower extremity stiffness and weakness that limited her ability to walk. She quickly developed dysphagia and odynophagia with subsequent generalised spasms and profound hypoxic respiratory failure requiring nasotracheal intubation. Read More

Nasolaryngeal Distances in the Adult Population and an Evaluation of Commercially Available Nasotracheal Tubes.

Anesth Analg 2020 04;130(4):1018-1025

From the Departments of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care.

Background: Preformed nasal endotracheal tubes (NETs) come with a predefined insertion depth due to their curved design. While size indication refers to internal diameter, there is a considerable variability in the corresponding lengths and proportions of same-sized tubes of different manufacturers which is probably based on the lack of data of nasolaryngeal distances (NLDs) in the adult population. Choosing the best-fitting NET is therefore difficult and carries the risk of endobronchial intubation or, on the contrary, cuff inflation at the vocal cord level. Read More

Randomized comparison of McGrath MAC videolaryngoscope, Pentax Airway Scope, and Macintosh direct laryngoscope for nasotracheal intubation in patients with manual in-line stabilization.

Can J Anaesth 2019 Oct 29;66(10):1213-1220. Epub 2019 May 29.

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, Ajou University School of Medicine, 164, World cup-ro, Yeongtong-gu, Suwon, 16499, Korea.

Background: The objective of this study was to determine the clinical usefulness of videolaryngoscopes (VLs) by comparing the time to intubation (TTI) and the ease of intubation of McGrath MAC VL (MVL), Pentax Airway Scope VL (PVL), and Macintosh direct laryngoscope (DL) during nasotracheal intubation using manual in-line stabilization to simulate difficult airways.

Methods: One hundred and twenty patients were randomly assigned to the MVL group (n = 40), the PVL group (n = 40), and the DL group (n = 40). Nasotracheal intubation was performed using MVL, PVL, or DL, according to group assignments. Read More

Nasal Alar Pressure Ulcer After Orthognathic Surgery: Clinical Presentation and Preventive Recommendations.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Sep;30(6):e533-e535

Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, College of Dentistry, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.

Nasotracheal intubation is routinely used in patients undergoing oral and maxillofacial surgery when intermaxillary fixation is needed either intraoperatively or postoperative. Various complications can occur such as epistaxis, turbinectomy, retropharyngeal dissection, tympanites, and nasal alar pressure sores or necrosis, especially when there is a prolonged nasotracheal intubation. The first report of a nasal alar necrosis after prolonged nasotracheal intubation was published by Hatcher et al in 1968. Read More

Orofacial management for epidermolysis bullosa during wisdom tooth removal surgery: A technical note.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Nov 22;120(5):467-470. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of maxillofacial surgery, university institute of the face and neck, university hospital of Nice, 31, avenue de Valombrose, 06100 Nice, France. Electronic address:

Introduction: Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a heterogeneous group of genetic diseases characterized by cutaneous and/or mucosal fragility. Blisters can occur spontaneously or because of minor friction on facial skin or the oral cavity. The repercussions of these dermatoses complicate the management of patients during surgery; for example, wisdom teeth removal might be complicated because of the limited mouth opening and mucosal lesions may be aggravated when the area of the wisdom teeth is being explored.
