Insertion of laryngeal mask airway does not increase the intraocular pressure in children with glaucoma.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES It is hypothesized that in children with glaucoma, the insertion of laryngeal mask airway (LMA) will cause lesser rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) than tracheal tube (TT). AIM To compare the IOP response to LMA and TT insertion in children with glaucoma. METHODS/MATERIALS A prospective, randomized, single-blind study was conducted in 30… (More)
