The obturator nerve passes in close proximity to the inferolateral bladder wall. Transurethral resection of bladder tumors close to these areas may stimulate the obturator nerve, causing violent adductor contraction and possible inadvertent bladder perforation. To avoid this reaction, local anesthetic blockade of the obturator nerve as it passes through the(More)
We conducted several tests for predicting the difficult intubation airway in 476 patients excluding those with neck disease and anatomical abnormalities. The evaluation was performed using four methods. 1. The size of the tongue in relation to the oral cavity (Mallampani test: M-T). 2. The hyomental distance (H-D). 3. The thyromental distance (T-D). 4. The(More)
An extremely low birth weight (832 g) and 29 gestational week neonate underwent surgical ligation of patent ductus arterious 20 days after birth and repair of coarctation of the aorta two months after the first operation. She developed asphyxia neonatorum and was artificially ventilated because of IRDS and attack of apnea. At the first operation, anesthesia(More)
We experienced the anesthetic management for two patients with congenital tracheomalacia. Inhaled anesthetics are considered to worsen the respiratory condition of tracheomalacia because of its bronchodilating effect. Thus we tried awake intubation in one case, but it was difficult. In another case, we used slow induction with sevoflurane and the trachea(More)
