The risk associated with multiple anesthesias is highest in patients with craniofacial defects. The bone status may deserve to be evaluated, as the combination of genetic abnormalities and physical impairments may promote bone loss. Clinicians should be cognizant of Stickler syndrome so that they can detect the disease in patients and their family members, prevent functional impairments, organize a multidisciplinary management strategy, and arrange for genetic counseling.
