  1. Case study: Anaesthetic management of an achondroplastic dwarf undergoing radical nephrectomy

    Case study: Anaesthetic management of an achondroplastic dwarf undergoing radical nephrectomy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    A three feet two inch (96 cm) tall achondroplastic patient with urothelial cell carcinoma involving renal pelvis was scheduled for a radical nephrectomy. Radial artery cannulation and central venous access were secured in the pre-induction period. After induction, the airway...
  2. A study to evaluate fibreoptic-guided intubation through the i-gel™

    A study to evaluate fibreoptic-guided intubation through the i-gel™

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Objective: The i-gel™ superglottic airway (Intersurgical, Berkshire, UK) has been reported to function as an airway rescue device and as a conduit for fibre-optic intubation in predicted difficult airways. The wider and shorter stem of the i-gel™ and the absence...

    Anaesthetic challenges in a patient with Klippel–Feil syndrome scheduled for panendoscopy and biopsy<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Klippel–Feil syndrome is one of the congenital causes of difficult airway. It is characterised by a classic triad of a short neck, restricted cervical spine movement, and a low posterior hairline, which can pose a significant challenge to the anaesthetist...
  4. Anaesthetic considerations in a child with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva

    Anaesthetic considerations in a child with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is an extremely rare genetic disorder characterised by extraskeletal ossification of connective tissue. Affected individuals often become completely immobilised by their third decade of life. Amongst numerous anaesthetic concerns, the airway management of patients with FOP...
  5. Video laryngoscopy in paediatric anaesthesia in South Africa

    Video laryngoscopy in paediatric anaesthesia in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    This article provides a summary of the types of video laryngoscopes available in South Africa, and highlights some interesting paediatric cases in which video laryngoscopes were used at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital, Pretoria.
  6. Submucous dissection of the nasopharynx complicating nasotracheal intubation

    Submucous dissection of the nasopharynx complicating nasotracheal intubation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    We present the case of a 60-year old woman, who had an unusual complication of nasotracheal intubation, which was carried out to relieve post-thyroidectomy respiratory distress at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH). She presented with a huge malignant...
  7. LMA CTrach™—Results of our first experience with the fiberoptic intubating laryngeal mask airway in 80 patients

    LMA CTrach™—Results of our first experience with the fiberoptic intubating laryngeal mask airway in 80 patients

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    We report on our initial clinical experience with the new LMA CTrach™. The intention was to evaluate its suitability in the routine anaesthetic working environment. Method: After inducing general anesthesia and muscle relaxation, the CTrach™ was used in elective patients,...
  8. Rigid endoscope-assisted tracheal intubation in a case of epiglottic cyst

    Rigid endoscope-assisted tracheal intubation in a case of epiglottic cyst

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Epiglottic cysts are of particular interest to both surgeons and anaesthetists because of the way in which they encroach on the airway. An epiglottic cyst in a 29-year-old woman was scheduled for endoscopic excision. It was located at the vallecula,...
  9. Cuffed endotracheal tubes in paediatrics

    Cuffed endotracheal tubes in paediatrics

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    The basic function of a tracheal tube is to provide a reliable connection between the patient's airway and the anaesthetic circuit (bag or ventilator). Ideally, this connection should allow a leak at 15–20 cmH2O to prevent pressure-related mucosal perfusion, which...
  10. Airway management in an infant with congenital trismus: the role of retrograde intubation

    Airway management in an infant with congenital trismus: the role of retrograde intubation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Congenital trismus is a serious anomaly, and establishment of an airway for surgical correction is a challenge. In the case of limited mouth opening, the nasal route is the only available option to secure the airway via the supraglottic route...
