Airway management for intubation in newborns with pierre robin sequence
The Laryngoscope, 04/26/2012Marston AP et al.
The series demonstrates that endotracheal intubation is safe and effective in Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) newborns. In patients who failed intubation with direct laryngoscopy, intubation over a flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope provided a reliable alternative method. Although airway management in PRS newborns poses a significant challenge, experienced otolaryngologists and anesthesiologists can successfully manage these difficult airway cases.
