Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a common adverse event after general anesthesia. Typically, the incidence of POST is highest in patients who are tracheally intubated; however, POST also occurs when a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is used. Even patients who are managed with a facemask are not immune. Most of the measures that have been recommended for reducing this complication have been directed at limiting the physical trauma that might result from airway instrumentation and manipulation… Expand
Treatment of postoperative sore throat after endotracheal intubation in third molar surgery
Introduction Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a frequent complaint following endotracheal intubation with incidence rates varying from 14.4% to 61%.1-3 It ranks along nausea as the most commonExpand
Benzydamine hydrochloride on postoperative sore throat: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
It is indicated that the incidence of POST can be significantly reduced by prophylactic BH topical application to the oral cavity or airway devices and further RCTs are required to overcome the limitations of heterogeneity and to determine the optimal dosage and application of BH for managing POST. Expand
Management of post-operative sore throat in patients undergoing endotracheal intubation: literature review
TLDR
Medical prevention of POST can be achieved by several agents as steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists, careful monitoring of the tracheal cuff pressure, and licorice application. Expand
Effectiveness of ketamine gargle in reducing the incidence of postoperative sore throat in patients undergoing airway instrumentation: a systematic review protocol
TLDR
Ketamine gargle is a newly proposed adjunct for reducing the incidence of POST in anesthesia literature and is hypothesized to provide analgesia due to its inhibition of N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate receptors and agonist activity at opioid receptors located in the oral and upper respiratory tract mucosa. Expand
The prophylactic effect of dexamethasone on postoperative sore throat in prone position surgery
TLDR
The prophylactic use of dexamethasone 0.1 mg/kg and 0.2 mg/ kg in prone surgery reduces the incidence of postoperative sore throat and dexamETHasone0.2mg/kg decreases the occurrence of hoarseness. Expand

Effectiveness of ketamine gargle in reducing postoperative sore throat in patients undergoing airway instrumentation: a systematic review
TLDR
Administration of ketamine gargle prior to induction of general anesthesia with airway instrumentation may improve patient satisfaction by decreasing patient discomfort and the need for adjunct pain therapy in the post anesthesia care unit. Expand
Comparative Evaluation of Efficacy of Nebulised Budesonide with Nebulised Dexamethasone in Reducing Post-operative Sore Throat in Patients undergoing Elective Lumbar Spine Surgery in Prone Position
TLDR
Single prophylactic pre-induction nebulization of patients undergoing elective lumbar spine surgery in a prone position with dexamethasone is better than budesonide in preventing POST. Expand
AN2_OA_Aslam edit
Background: Postoperative sore throat (POST) is a minor complication after general anaesthesia. Many agents have been used as lubricant to reduce the incidence of POST with variable efficacy. MethodsExpand
Gender differences in sore throat and hoarseness following endotracheal tube or laryngeal mask airway: a prospective study
TLDR
There was no significant gender difference in postoperative sore throat (POST) and postoperative hoarseness (PH) when analyzing both airway devices together and in a clinical setting where women are intubated with a smaller size ETT than men. Expand

Widespread Application of Topical Steroids to Decrease Sore Throat, Hoarseness, and Cough After Tracheal Intubation
TLDR
It is hypothesized that coating the endotracheal tube from the cuff to the 15-cm mark with betamethasone, a water-soluble steroid that has been used topically for the treatment of inflammatory lesions of the oral mucosa, would reduce these sequelae. Expand
Inhaled Fluticasone Propionate Reduces Postoperative Sore Throat, Cough, and Hoarseness
TLDR
Inhaled fluticasone propionate decreases the incidence and severity of postoperative sore throat, cough, and hoarseness in patients undergoing cesarean delivery under general anesthesia. Expand
Postoperative sore throat: cause, prevention and treatment
TLDR
Sore throat following the use of a laryngeal mask appears to be related to the technique of insertion but the contribution of intracuff pressure remains to be clarified. Expand
Strepsils® Tablets Reduce Sore Throat and Hoarseness After Tracheal Intubation
TLDR
Perioperative use of Strepsils tablets reduces postoperative sore throat and hoarseness of voice. Expand
Prophylactic laryngo‐tracheal aerosolized lidocaine against postoperative sore throat
TLDR
There were no significant differences between the two groups, which suggests that topical anaesthesia of the mucosa of the upper airway is ineffective as a means of ameliorating airway complaints in connection with tracheal intubation. Expand
Prophylactic Dexamethasone Decreases the Incidence of Sore Throat and Hoarseness After Tracheal Extubation with a Double-Lumen Endobronchial Tube
TLDR
The prophylactic use of 0.2 mg/kg of dexamethasone significantly decreases the incidence and severity of sore throat and hoarseness 1 h and 24 h after tracheal extubation of a DLT. Expand
Controlled comparison between betamethasone gel and lidocaine jelly applied over tracheal tube to reduce postoperative sore throat, cough, and hoarseness of voice.
TLDR
A wide spread application of betamethasone gel on the tracheal tube decreases the incidence and severity of postoperative sore throat, cough, and hoarseness of voice. Expand
Postoperative sore throat after ambulatory surgery.
TLDR
Sore throat in ambulatory surgical patients was associated with female sex, younger patients, use of succinylcholine, and gynaecological surgery and predicts postoperative sore throat. Expand
Effect on Postoperative Sore Throat of Spraying the Endotracheal Tube Cuff with Benzydamine Hydrochloride, 10% Lidocaine, and 2% Lidocaine
TLDR
Spraying benzydamine hydrochloride on the ETT cuff is a simple and effective method to reduce the incidence and severity of POST. Expand
